Subway Plug

 (© StartPoint Media, Inc.)

I recently contributed video work to a New York Times project. The story was about a team of researchers at West Virginia University who have developed technology to help prevent subway flooding after a major storm like Hurricane Sandy. The team uses an inflatable three layer balloon to act as a subway tunnel plug to minimize or prevent water from entering the subway system.
