About "as it is"

Can VR Help Save the Grand Canyon?

The Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing natural wonders of the world, more than 5 million people visit the rim at Grand Canyon National Park every year, but very few will ever see it from the Colorado River. Access to Grand Canyon via river is strictly regimented, to protect fragile ecosystems and to preserve Native American heritage and claim to the neighboring lands.

For years, the Grand Canyon has been steeped in controversial land development proposals that could change this landmark forever. Developments like the Grand Canyon Escalade would bring as many as 10,000 tourists per day to the shore of the river on a gondola, a 20 year ban on uranium mining could be lifted, public land is losing federal protection, and housing developments put strain on an already lacking supply of water and natural resources.

Our documentary will take you on an incredible journey, in VR, to the sacred sites in the heart of the wilderness that would be impacted by these developments. It is our hope that you'll be convinced that the Grand Canyon is worth preserving and protecting, as it is.

Full documentary coming in Q1 2018!

Leave it as it is


Theodore Roosevelt Stereograph

"In the Grand Canyon, Arizona has a natural wonder which is in kind absolutely unparalleled throughout the rest of the world. I want to ask you to keep this great wonder of nature as it now is. I hope you will not have a building of any kind, not a summer cottage, a hotel or anything else, to mar the wonderful grandeur, the sublimity, the great loneliness and beauty of the canyon. Leave it as it is. You cannot improve on it. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it."

- President Theodore Roosevelt, 1903
