‘Tilt Brush’ Devs Hack Together Virtual Potter’s Wheel with Vive Tracker – Road to VR


A novel use of a single Vive Tracker is to stick it to a
rotating platform in order to create a virtual potter’s wheel.
Patrick Hackett, co-creator of Tilt Brush,
tweeted a short clip of the tracker in action
experimented with by an intern.

The Vive Tracker, a small, wireless puck containing similar
tracking elements to a Vive motion controller, has been the
subject of many experiments involving accessory and body
tracking since its debut at CES in January, including another

art-orientated test of a VR stylus

While a virtual potter’s wheel might be more suitable for
sculpting clay in Oculus Medium, the Tilt
team are clearly having a great time creating
spiraling artwork thanks to intern Drew Gottlieb’s idea.
However, in the tweet, Hackett says “don’t get too excited,
this isn’t going to ship.”
