With the Google Tilt brush you can think beyond the two dimensional art that used to be created in charts, papers, canvases and sheets, or even a software application for that matter. Using the Google Tilt Brush, you can paint in three-dimensional space – all X, Y and Z coordinates. Let’s face it, the real world is three-dimensional, then why should our art be otherwise. Tilt Brush lets you draw and color in 3D space with the aid of virtual reality. Bring your creative images to life with three-dimensional brush strokes, and add stars, snowflakes, light, or fire to it as your imagination takes. The room you are in becomes your canvas (or a blank slate), while your palette becomes your imagination. This virtual reality feature unlocks endless possibilities to create what you want.

The dynamic brushes help you bring your imagined effects to life and the intuitive interface is good for both experts and newbies. Since the painting is done in a virtual reality interface, you can literally walk in the room as you paint it. You also have the option to share your masterpiece as a gif (graphical image format) image. Well, you are reading about the technology that is going to become a standard in the future. People then will do away with two dimensional imaging options and options for a more real experience. As of now the options to use Google Tilt brush are limited. It is only available through the HTC Vive (a Virtual reality device), by installing “Steam” (an online gaming platform). People who have tried the Google Tilt have been amazed by the effect it lets you add to the image and the sheer excitement that virtual reality bring to your creativity.
