Planeta is a product studio focused on sound and media. We develop creative tools, unique VR/AR experiences, and hardware products. Our sister entity, OONI, is a virtual reality studio with expertise in photography and art. And our Space in the East Village of Manhattan is an active performance venue.

Visual Work

The following showcases Planeta’s original and collaborative projects with hypervisual mixed media.

The iOS offshoot of our larger platform, the to.be Camera app uncovers a fantastic digital world beneath the surface of reality.
