Google Blocks lets users create 3D objects in VR

Google has released a new app for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift that allows users to create 3D objects easily and quickly.

The app is designed to remove the need for complex software and a specific skillset with regrads to the creation of VR and AR experiences.

In a blog post, group product manager Jason Toff, wrote:

“It’s designed to feel more like playing with children’s blocks than working with traditional 3D modeling software. Starting with a simple set of shapes, a color palette, and an intuitive set of tools, you’re able to naturally and quickly create almost anything you can imagine, from a piece of watermelon to a whole forest scene.”

Users can export their creation as OBJ for use in AR or VR apps currently in development. Creations can also be shared on the web or turned into animated gifs.

The app is free on Oculus Store and Steam.
