Welcome to Blueplanet VR

Our goal is to create leading volumetric VR content of remarkable locations on the planet. True-to-life VR utilizing advanced technology coupled with experienced environment capture and rich art direction is the closest thing to experiencing these compelling and special places, we look forward to sharing them soon and believe you will agree.

Blueplanet VR

Blueplanet VR is an extensible, curated collection of 48 photogrammetric experiences of unique and compelling scenic and cultural heritage locations worldwide, ranging from Borobudur Temple in Indonesia to Bears Ears National Monument in the southwestern US. Providing full presence and mobility within remarkable locations, the user can freely explore, manipulate, and query various media to provide context and stimulate insight. We are working to release v01 in Spring 2020 in all the major VR portals for tethered HMD’s initially, then followed by Oculus Quest support.




Blueplanet VR was formed in 2018 by Eric Hanson, previously of xRez Studio, a formative VR practice specializing in 360 capture technology, cultural heritage, and science visualization content. With a background in design, architecture, photography, and visual effects, Eric finds enormous potential in volumetric VR for creating important and meaningful experiences.
