Tilt Brush has been one of the most striking demos that Valve has shown to those who have tested the HTC Vive system with Lighthouse drivers, and after watching this video you will understand the reason.
This tool developed by Skillman & Hackett can be tested on any device compatible with Cardboard on Android. We will not be able to paint, but we will be able to see some creations made with it. But it has been his appearance together with Lighthouse and SteamVR that has aroused the admiration of everyone. The possibility of painting in a 3D space using our hands and physically moving opens up a lot of possibilities, and highlights the importance of absolute positioning and the ability to move freely in a virtual environment.
The SteamVR version puts a brush in the right hand, a palette in the left, and from there the artist can move, bend down, approach, lean out and deploy all his talent to give shape to unthinkable creations until a few months ago. And yes, games are going to be the main protagonists in the beginnings of virtual reality, but applications like Tilt Brush give us an idea of the possibilities that open up in other areas.
