The Weather Channel is back at it again, and their latest immersive mixed reality video is definitely no slouch. This segment, hosted by meteorologist Jen Carfagno, begins with a virtual recreation of Charleston, South Carolina in the year 2100. You see the city’s flooded streets, a billboard advertising the 2086 elections, and then the remains of the city. You’re then transported to Jakobshavn Glacier in Greenland way back in 1851.

“To make these segments, The Weather Channel uses a popular video game development platform called the Unreal Engine to adjust the graphics in real time. Using camera tracking technology, the production team puts the meteorologist in the scene,” according to The Verge.
