Tiltbrush lets you create art in virtual reality

We’ve seen some pretty nifty uses for virtual reality since the Oculus Rift hit the scene, but nothing quite like Tilt Brush. At its core, the app is a 3D painting program. Boiling it down to that is a little disingenuous, though. Making art with the Rift looks absurdly cool and you aren’t limited to making a two-dimensional scene with Roy G. Biv — Tilt Brush allows for painting with light, smoke and stars too.

Virtual reality has so many applications beyond just games and boob grabbing simulators — you can also use it to make wonderful 3D art. Above is the trailer for Tiltbrush — a prototype VR painting simulator made by Skillman & Hackett. Not only does it let you paint virtually in 3D, it even lets you paint with giant swaths of light and smoke. It’s like a weird fusion of Rez and The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross. I’m not sure what’s more impressive: the concept, the fact it’s VR or the cool-as-heck floating interface.
