Drew Skillman is currently on the Google VR team developing 'Tilt Brush', a virtual reality application that allows anyone to paint in 3D space at room scale. That project developed as part of a number of different augmented reality, virtual reality, and natural motion experiences at the company he co-founded, Skillman & Hackett, before it was acquired by Google in 2015. Drew is a long-time proponent of rapid prototyping, and has given several GDC talks in the past focused in those areas. His most recent session "Rapid Prototyping at Double Fine" showcased massive compute shader-based particle simulations, forbidden Kinect prototypes, early Leap Motion experiments, and even Arduino-based mind control. Before that, he presented "Rock Show VFX: Bringing Brutal Legend to Life", and regularly moderates the Visual Effects Artist Roundtable. He transitioned to VR & game development from physics and brings that experience to bear on a variety of problems, ranging from exploding heavy metal zeppelins to burping matryoshka's. Shipped titles include 'Tilt Brush', 'Happy Action Theater', 'Kinect Party', 'Brutal Legend', 'Stacking', 'Iron Brigade', 'Dropchord', 'Little Pink Best Buds', 'Autonomous' and DLC for 'The Playroom', a PS4 launch title.
