How do you showcase VR experience? We have always told you it’s not something we can really show you. We have tried to tell you what it’s like multiple times… but the only real way to understand virtual reality is to experience it first-hand. Your second best bet is to check out Google’s brand new Chrome experiment – Virtual Art Sessions.

What are these Virtual Art Sessions all about? In short, they are the best way for you to understand VR without actually strapping a headset on. Google used a bevy of sensors, cameras and the actual virtual art created by 6 different types of artists. The main purpose was to showcase Tilt Brush, an art creation tool now available for the HTC Vive.

We know very few of you actually have an HTC Vive (or have even used one, for that matter). It is honestly the most impressve VR headset I have ever used. It is also location aware, giving these artists complete freedom to move around their creations and shape them as they wish.

Participating artists include Christoph Niemann, Katie Rodgers, Andrea Blasich, Seung Yul Oh, Harald Belker and Sheryo & Yok. These come from different paths of life and work in different industries, so you can get an idea of how VR can really help all types of creators.

The Chrome Experiment, which works like a regular website, takes advantage of a bunch of Chrome technology. This includes WebGL, WebM Video, RGBD Toolkit, Three.js and more. For all the technical details you can just refer back to the Visual Art Sessions tech page.

COMPILATION
As you’ll find out, this makes for a seamless and intuitive experience. All you have to do is access the website, hit “Start” and select your artist. The experience will begin shortly, and you will be able to look at these artists in action in any angle you want, as well as any zoom level. You can even speed up the video or look at the content from the artist’s perspective.

Standing in front of a camera and attempting to explain VR is cool and all, but we must say Google’s experience may give you a better understanding of things. Go check it out!
