“We’ve got big plans with PaintLab. It gives users the possibility to experience the power of Virtual Reality. We’ve got feedback from early access users that will make PaintLab more beautiful for businesses and a useful tool to performance artsits from all over the world.

Soon to be released updates will offer a Multiplayer option, together with an export/import option for 3D Objects and file formats. In this way PaintLab becomes a powerful tool for architects and product designers for example, but you could also 3D-print your PaintLabs, or use PaintLab during performances and keynotes.
