The future of PaintLab

Gijs Molsbergen (me), co-founder and marketing manager of LAB4242 about PaintLab:

“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.

So there’s much more to come. As a Virtual Reality Development startup and enthusiasts, we
want to offer people a VR experience that embraces and stimulates creativie freedom.
Thanks to VR technology we’ve now made an app that matters to children, businesses, VR enthusiasts and many more people from all over the world.”
