Experience virtual reality art in your browser


Google Developers Blog: Experience virtual reality art in your browser

Posted by Jeff Nusz, Data Arts Team, Pixel Painter



Two weeks ago, we introduced Tilt Brush, a new app that enables artists to use virtual reality to paint the 3D space around them. Part virtual reality, part physical reality, it can be difficult to describe how it feels without trying it firsthand. Today, we bring you a little closer to the experience of painting with Tilt Brush using the powers of the web in a new Chrome Experiment titled Virtual Art Sessions.



Virtual Art Sessions lets you observe six world-renowned artists as they develop blank canvases into beautiful works of art using Tilt Brush. Each session can be explored from start to finish from any angle, including the artist's perspective - all viewable right from the browser.

Participating artists include illustrator free soundcloud Christoph Niemann, fashion illustrator Katie Rodgers, sculptor Andrea Blasich, installation artist Seung Yul Oh, automotive concept designer Harald Belker, and street artist duo Sheryo & Yok. The artists' unique approaches to this new medium become apparent when seeing them work inside their Tilt Brush creations. Watch this behind-the-scenes video to hear what the artists had to say about their experience:

Virtual Art Sessions makes use of Google Chrome's V8 Javascript engine for high-performance processing power to render large volumes of data in real time. This includes point cloud data of the artist's physical form, 3D geometry data of the artwork, and position data of the VR controllers. It also relies on Chrome's support of WebM video and WebGL to produce the 360? representations of the artists and artwork - the artist portrayals alone require the browser to draw over 200,000 points at 30 times a second. For a deeper look, read the technical case study or browse the project code that is available open source from the site's tech page.

We hope this experiment provides a window into the world of painting in virtual reality using Tilt Brush. We are excited by this new medium and hope the experience leaves you feeling the same. Visit g.co/VirtualArtSessions to start exploring.
