Whenever we're involved with a project that focus on access to nature and parts of the world that the public either has never seen before or hasn't had access to in generations, we get all warm and fuzzy inside.
So when we were approached by the Willamette Falls Trust, who are working in conjunction with Oregon City, Clackamas County, Metro and the State of Oregon, to help them bring to life their vision for restoring public access, for the first time in 150 years, to THE NATION'S SECOND LARGEST WATERFALL, we were beyond thrilled.
Superswell VR, was insanely fortunate to be asked by the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology to produce a 360 virtual reality tour of their campus - a campus that sits at the trailhead of one of the most spectacular spots on the Oregon coast - Cascade Head.
The Sitka Center is a pretty impressive and special little place. With it's robust ecology & arts-inspired programming and its artist-in-residence programs and its location...oh its location...you couldn't find a better way to spend a weekend...or a week...or a month….
We've got some pretty cool stuffs to share - Superswell VR has just been approved and classified as a Trusted Google Street View company.

Some of the most important and purposeful work we can think of involves inspiring the future of our environment's stewards to learn about, care for, and share their care for, Mother Nature. And there's a local non-profit organization in Portland, Oregon doing just that - Ecology in Classrooms & Outdoors (ECO).
Through both in-classroom ecology lessons and hands-on ecological enrichment programs, over the past 12 years, ECO has inspired over 20,000 elementary school students to connect to our natural world. TWENTY THOUSAND! What this insanely talented and dedicated group of creative and passionate administrators and educators have put together and managed to accomplish has been nothing short of incredible. Needless to say, Superswell VR cannot be prouder and more humbled to be working with ECO…
Last month, Superswell VR co-founder Wasim Muklashy was asked to head out to Branson, Missouri, the location for the 16th annual North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) conference, to deliver a presentation entitled "How Virtual Reality Is Changing The Travel Industry."
Superswell VR co-founder Wasim Muklashy and a couple of his buddies recently backpacked Olympic National Park's High Divide Trail, an 18-mile loop that takes you through old-growth forests, sub-alpine meadows and valleys filled with alpine lake after lake and rivers and streams, rocky ridge-lines affording you a peek at Mount Olympus, and so much more.
Well, to save you a few mosquito bites and blisters…
Science, nature, and a sustainable future are all topics that we hold near and dear to us at Superswell VR, so we could not have been more excited when the North American Forest Partnership invited us to their latest conference in Portland, Oregon to show their members what's possible in virtual reality.
In staying true to their mission of sustainability, the first day found us at the offices of Ankrom Moisan Architects, an architecture firm dedicated to sustainable and communal design, and on the second day…
When Superswell VR co-founder and professional photographer Wasim Muklashy made the choice to move up to the Pacific Northwest he knew he had to pay homage to the Santa Monica Mountains - home to his beloved Topanga Canyon.
"No question about it, that range played one of the most pivotal roles in the development from one version of me to another," Muklashy states. "From…
If you haven't noticed, we at Superswell VR like to get our adventure on, and when it comes to the outdoors, who better to team up with than Outdoor Project. Here's a recent hike we did to Oregon's beautiful Clackamas & Memaloose Falls in the Mount Hood Forest in, yup, full 360˚ virtual reality video. Ropes, mud, bridges, tunnels...this one had it all. So strap on your hiking boots, a couple liters of water, a snack, some sunscreen, and your VR headset and join us while we do it again...and again...and again...

If you've got a VR headset and want to check out the shenanigans we found ourselves caught up in at last year's festival, jump in via…"
The ocean is the most important ecosystem on our planet, and Doug Aitken isn't about to let us forget that. The internationally renowned contemporary artist has created "Underwater Pavilions," a traveling exhibit that you can only see by diving or snorkeling. The exhibit consists of three swim-in, swim-out sculptures that utilize a mix of rugged and reflective materials. Part of each pavilion is mirrored, surrounding divers with a kaleidoscopic seascape.
Our first season focuses on off-the-beaten-track experiences in the greater Los Angeles area. In episode one, we strap on our seatbelts, tighten our helmets and get behind the wheel at Drift 101. Drifting pros Naoki Kobayashi and David Kim think they can teach us how to drift in less than 20 minutes. Lunacy? We think so…
Well that was something! And a crazy fun something at that! Last week, the Superswell® VR team braved the Pacific Ocean's winter waters to capture a cutting-edge underwater sculpture exhibit in 360˚ VR video.
Kurhotel Skodsborg is the Danish Rivera’s premiere health and wellness retreat, with a history that spans centuries.
King Frederic VII of Denmark acquired the Skodsborg county estate in the mid-1800s to summer here with his wife, and vestiges of the past add both character and a sense of place to the property. The King’s Hall—where state meetings and banquets were held—has been painstakingly restored according to the estate’s original drawings, so it looks just as it did in the 19th century. You can spot the king's seal and a bust of the king himself if you look closely.
