Autistic savant Stephen Wiltshire has been featured in a new advertisement from car manufacturer Nissan, demonstrating his amazing memory and artistic ability. Given just 60 seconds to observe one of their cars, Stephen then used Google’s virtual reality-based 3D painting tool Tilt Brush – which he had never used previously – to ‘sketch’ the car.

To see Stephen working on a grander scale, with more traditional art resources, check out the video below of him using pencil and paper to draw the city of Rome in virtually perfect detail, from memory, after just one viewing from a helicopter.
