Google has shut down work on 3D painting app Tilt Brush

Google has made an announcement that has shut down its development of 3D painting app Tilt Brush, marking the latest in a string of virtual and augmented reality disappointments for the firm.

The tech giant acquired the firm behind Tilt Brush, Skillman & Hackett, for an undisclosed sum in 2015, praising its “innovative approach to 3D painting.” At one point, it hired Tilt Brush Artists in Residence.

But on Tuesday, Google confirmed in a blog post that it would halt the development of the product, instead of making its source code available on code-hosting platform Github.
