Phusicos VR – Immersive tech to help prevent climate disasters

Designing tech to educate, influence, and move from thought to action

Climate change is forcing communities to rethink how they plan buildings, infrastructure, and entire cities and regions. Nature-based solutions (NbS) aim to mitigate climate change-related disasters such as floods by using nature more than engineered solutions. Phusicos VR, a collaboration between Innlandet County and The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, aims to offer an educational and effective communication tool to explain challenges related to climate mitigation, as well as these alternative solutions. We have helped them design and develop the solution – immersive technology in the shape of a Virtual Reality app.
