Making Virtual Reality A Group Activity

By Gizmodo Australia on at

Software developer Drew Gottlieb wanted to make creating art with virtual reality somehow even more magical - by including the people watching.

"A friend was recently painting a 3D submarine in Tilt Brush," Gottlieb says, "'Look at this periscope!' she said. I told her to look closer at it, and I leaned into my computer monitor to get a glimpse of what she made."

"We can do better than this. Why do I have to get up off the couch to see what my friend is creating? Why can’t I just lean back and see the art floating in the middle of the room?"

So he spent a week making a "proof of concept" using a couple of HoloLens and the HTC Vive VR system.
