Google has introduced a new way of digital art drawing with the launch of the Tilt Brush app on the HTC Vive virtual reality (VR).
Tilt Brush allows users to paint in three dimensional space taking advantage of virtual reality to use otherwise-impossible materials like fire, stars or snowflakes.
According to Google, to use Tilt Brush, you just select your colours and brush and start drawing with a wave of hand, using your room as canvass and your imagination as your palette.
“One of the best parts about any new medium is just seeing what’s possible. So, we brought Tilt Brush to The Lab at Google Cultural Institute, a space in Paris created to bring tech and creative communities together to discover new ways to experience art.” Google said in a blog post.
Google adds that “since then, artists from around the world and from every discipline have come to explore their style in VR for the very first time. We’ve already seen some incredible pieces from professional animators, painters, and street artists, but even casual doodlers can start painting in seconds.’’
To start using the Tilt Brush, set up your HTC Vive virtual reality, install steam, launch the Tilt Brush app and start your creation. The app is already available on the HTC Vive according to Google.
