MIXED RE­AL­ITY USED TO VI­SU­ALISE AR­MAGED­DON CON­DI­TIONS.

One of the inevitable con­se­quences of cli­mate change is an in­crease in the fre­quency and sever­ity of storms, but not ev­ery­one in­trin­si­cally un­der­stands the im­pli­ca­tions of 100k/h winds or the im­pact of a 1m storm surge on their lo­cal town. In one of the most dra­matic uses of AR to date, The Weather Chan­nel used mixed re­al­ity to demon­strate what 3-feet (91.5 cm), 6-feet and 9-feet of storm surge would look like in the lead up to hur­ri­cane Florence.
