Google is pushing big time on content creation in VR. Currently it takes complex software and a specific skillset to create compelling VR and AR experiences. That software also requires building 3D objects on a 2D screen—something our brains aren’t wired to do.  So google released Blocks, a VR app for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift that lets you easily create beautiful, 3D objects in no time.

According to google Blocks is simple enough for anyone to use, even those without any prior modeling experience. 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, and user is  able to naturally and quickly create almost anything he can imagine, from a piece of watermelon to a whole forest scene.
