Weather Channel Segment Uses New Immersive Tech To Help Visualize Storm Surges

September 14, 2018

This is a video of The Weather Channel's Dave Malkoff using some new immersive technology to explain storm surges and help viewers visualize their danger. Personally, the term 'storm surge' alone is enough for me to know I want no part of one, but that's just me and I'm a firm believer safety always comes first. "Um, did you just swallow a thumbtack?" Well yeah, but only to pop the balloon animal I swallowed.

Keep going for the video, and everyone be safe out there.

Thanks to Christian, who's not convinced this was less technology and more Dave Malkoff having superpowers.

    Better than the video on my FB today - some weather dude pretending he's barely able to stand unaware that his oscar-worthy performance is upstaged by the arrival of two clueless dudes strolling with no problem behind him with no issue whatsoever. Full gif: https://i.gyazo.com/29a77ac...

    Maybe these dudes were strolling with their pockets full of concrete and soles made of lead.

    I prefer the first version of this that I saw, with a woman in the same spot, but the same video shown, of course... It makes me wonder which one was the original, because TWC has been known to swipe things like this in the past:
