Hofstra University Uses VR To Put You Face To Face With A Category 3 Hurricane


To bring the hurricane VR experience to life, the team turned to Jackson Snellings and Alex Smiros of EdTech at Hofstra to create the simulation using Unity 3D, with Bernhardt providing scientific guidance for an accurate representation of a category 3 hurricane landfall. The project is currently focused on the campus community, but Bernhard does have plans to bring the experience to other parts of Long Island hit by Hurricane Sandy, such as Long Beach. .
