Oculus is giving away a virtual reality painting tool, but you'll still have to pony up some of your hard-earned dollars to be able to use it. The company will release the beta version of Quill for free on December 6th, the same day its Touch motion controllers start shipping out... because you need the $199 controllers to do any actual art.

Quill was created to give Art Director Wesley Allsbrook a way to draw the Oculus Story Studio original film Dear Angelica directly in virtual reality. It was developed within 48 hours during a hackathon in 2015, and since then, Oculus has added new features to allow artists' distinct styles to shine and make them feel like they're truly painting in 3D. You can download Quill on December 6th from the Oculus Home Store -- till then, you can check out what it can do in the video below.
