Oculus Virtual Reality is planning to offer Beta Quill to users for free when they launch the much-anticipated Touch Hand Controllers December 6th. This is welcome news to Oculus enthusiasts patiently waiting for the enhanced VR experience provided by allowing users increased control over the Oculus virtual reality world.
Quill will offer users the ability to create individual artistic creations by drawing in a virtual reality world and allow them to share their “performance art masterpieces” with audiences around the world. Oculus Quill will work like the VR painting app, Tilt Brush, which was acquired by Google.
One reason for the free release of Oculus Quill in conjunction with the launch of the Touch Hand Controllers, is to promote the increased functionality provided for users. By using different brushstrokes that appear on the 3D canvas in real time, users are provided new dimensions in artistic creation.
Although this VR illustration software was originally designed for Dear Angelica, Oculus’ third virtual reality film, opening up this innovative program to a large audience will only foster the creativity that Oculus develops by adding additional options for their loyal virtual reality following.
This is further demonstrated with Oculus Medium, which allows users to sculpt and model, which is especially cool as budding artists can create virtual reality designs using varied VR “materials and mediums” to showcase their talents. By providing options for painting, drawing, sculpting, and modelling, the Oculus creative team have really gone the extra mile in providing a variety of options to let your creative side flourish.
Quill is going to be great fun for users of all skill levels and interest, excited to create in the VR art world. Beyond the normal market segment of users, wee see parents loving this Beta Oculus Quill version for their kids. Just imagine providing your children with an engaging, but educational experience in the virtual reality world. Not only are the Oculus VR games appealing to the younger set, but this adds a new dimension to the applications available that provide a constructive use of this incredible technology.
If you are harboring an inner Picasso, release your creative side by checking out Oculus Quill and Touch Controllers releasing on December 6th.
