Google has unveiled its new 3D-modelling tool ‘Blocks to simplify the process to create compelling virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences.

As Google looks to simplify the content creation in Virtual reality so that they can attract more and more people. Google has been very successful with the painting app the Tilt brush and now Google is looking to launch a new app that allows users to create 3D objects using tools built especially for the virtual reality medium.


This is available on for free with the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift headsets it helps users create a 3D virtual 3D canvass.

"Current software requires building 3D objects on a 2D screen which is something our brains aren't wired to do. It occurred to us that creating the objects while in virtual reality could make this easier," said Jason Toff, Group Product Manager at Google, in a blog post on Thursday.

Interestingly, Blocks isn’t available on Google’s own Daydream platform that runs on high-end phones with a headset and handheld controller; that would certainly make the tool a bit more accessible.
