Departure Lounge combines VR and AR technologies to deliver a futuristic experience exploring climate change’s impact on your immediate environment.
A collaboration between XR professionals and the University of the Arts London, it’s an event in two sequential parts; The VR component immerses users in a haunting future world, in which their own hometowns have been ravaged by the worst excesses of global warming. It is an uncompromising story that delivers a shocking punch. The subsequent AR component offers agency over that future, empowering users to affect positive change, and providing a climate change toolkit to shape a better future.
