Google has a New “VR-ish” App for You to Try Out

Google’s Android Experiments program has a new app for you to play with today, called Sprayscape. The app is a “VR-ish” experience mixed with a spray can, some gyroscope action, and your imagination. Confused?

With Sprayscape, the goal is to create super random 3D-like imagery that you can quickly share to your social audiences. You fire up the app and then just start tapping or spraying in a VR world to create fun visions that you would want to send to friends. I know that still doesn’t make much sense, so please, watch the video above.

Done? Make more sense? Look like fun? Give it a shot – it’s free.  (more…)
