We've talked a lot about our collective experiences through early versions of the HTC Vive here at Android Central, and to say this tech and its current applications are mind-blowing is something of an understatement. It really is one of those things that need to be tried in order to be fully understood and appreciated, and even then it's important to remember we're only scratching the surface of what this technology is capable of.
The video below is a perfect example. All of us who have tried the HTC Vive so far were walked through the demo that lets you draw in 3D space. It's cool stuff, to be sure. You're given a massive paint wheel with lots of brush options and a physical paintbrush to create something almost as though you were sculpting, and throughout the entire experience you can walk around your art and appreciate it from every angle. It's beyond cool, but when your greatest accomplishment as an artist is a stick figure there's not much to show the rest of the world.
When you're Glen Keane, the animator behind The Little Mermaid, Tarzan, and most recently Duet on Google's Spotlight Stories to name a few, this paint mode in the HTC Vive translates into something just shy of magic.
