VR Sculpting to AI Imagery
2023-05-10

I always seem to be attracted to things that feel like magic (AI is a clear example of this). Five years ago I got my first Virtual Reality headset. I never tried one, but when I saw videos about Google Tilt Brush and Masterpiece Studio and Adobe Medium, I needed to have it. Today I run everything wirelessly, but back then a long wire suspended from my ceiling with a series of retractable pulleys, wrapped around the room, and went into my gaming rig. It wasn’t ideal at all, but it was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. VR was exactly what I wanted – pure magic. In an instant my boring, empty, dark room could be transformed into a beach at sunset, a multiplayer battleground, or a studio with endless clay.

I got really into virtual sculpting (like staying up until 3am with 6 hours straight in VR). It felt so intuitive, I mean, I get to use my hands to manipulate material in front of me. I can make it bigger, smaller, and walk around it as if the virtual object is actually in my room. I created a lot of stuff for fun, and even was hired to sculpt.

Now that AI is my new creative hobby, I wanted to see how this technology could take in things I’ve sculpted and make something new of them, maybe more detailed than I was able to sculpt. Here are three examples – an octopus, large format camera, and a circuit board. Not only was I shocked by the similarities to my own creations, but it got me thinking how we might soon be able to quickly sketch 3D objects and “paint in” more details via artificial intelligence. The entire game could change… I can’t wait until I can put on a VR headset, sculpt a quick asset I need for a project, then use AI technology and enhance the looks of my creation. Can you /imagine that?
