Player review: I was showing Tilt Brush to a friend and his son, he’s maybe 8yo? His son sits on the floor and pulls his knees up, and makes these sweeping arcs overhead. I can see his POV from my monitor but have no idea what he’s painting, everything is mostly white. […] It’s an igloo. His very first time using VR and trying Tilt Brush, the kid immediately understood he could build 3D inhabitable objects.
