I bought Tilt Brush on sale today. Been waiting for a chance to give it a try. Much fun!. Here's the first scene I made while getting used to the tools.

It is kind of expensive, though not too bad if you already have a powerful computer and graphics card. I'm using Oculus Rift + the Oculus Touch controllers About $800 for headset and controllers. New PC that's compatible is about $1000 -1200..

Chunky Orbits changed quite a bit while I had it in Early Access on SteamVR. Now it has full support of Oculus Rift+Touch controllers and HTC Vive. Lot's of sparkly new particleeffects, too. []-)

I made a couple of short 'gameplay' videos to show of the newly released version.

Story
Tagline
digital tinkerer
Introduction
I'm following my creative whims, exploring the intersection of art and technology. Currently obsessed with creating games and sims in Unity, animating fractals with Mandelbulb 3D, and sculpting in Zbrush. I also enjoy creating meditative/experimental videos using Processing, After Effects, and Sony Vegas.

I've worked as a cook for 25 years, but now I'm working on Indie games and other creative digital projects. My first game, Crashed Lander, launched in June 2014! Now I'm working on a sci-fi farming simulation called XenoFarm.
