Tilt Brush is a new painting application for Oculus Rift created by Skillman & Hackett, a San Francisco interactive design studio that lets you create art in virtual reality.




Tilt Brush is a new virtual reality tool that lets users paint in three dimensions. The software was created for the Oculus Rift that lets you paint in virtual reality.

"We're going to support as many platforms as we can, but we're a small team so we'll likely be limited to those that can reach the most users."


Tilt Brush takes advantage of VR's unique characteristics by allowing users to create beautiful three-dimensional paintings using virtual paint, smoke, stars, and light.

In order to paint in all dimensions, Tilt Brush lets users rotate, flip, and re-position a grid that operates as a stationary plane in space.

For example, if you wanted to paint the ground of a landscape, you would adjust the grid to be parallel with the virtual ground; if you then wanted to paint a building, you would simply rotate the plane 90 degrees.

When you're finished with your virtual creation, Tilt Brush will let you export it to a GIF graphic.

Tilt Brush was created by San Francisco design studio Skillman & Hackett. The software was nominated for four Proto Awards including Best Interaction Design, Most Innovative, and Best Overall Virtual Reality Application. Winner of Best GUI. Some of the firm's other virtual reality work is showcased in the video below.

"We're going to support as many platforms as we can, but we're a small team so we'll likely be limited to those that can reach the most users," Patrick Hackett told The Verge. "If the hardware manufacturers are listening, though, we're very interested in the headsets that support pass through video. Hint hint."

We have to wait for the consumer edition of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset in order to try Tilt Brush.
