Wind socks are dull. They just flap around, not doing much,
even when it is windy. What's needed is the type of sock
folk will really notice. The idea is therefore to remodel the
wind-sock to take on the form of the outline of a hurricane
How often have you seen the determined
bracing themselves against the wind, their face contorted as
they struggle to talk in the teeth of the storm? Its an
and potent indicator of the strength of the wind.
Hurricane Reporter Windsock would hang limply until the
picked up, then gradually inflate until it became fully filled
and animated in the event of a storm. In severe conditions
arm would be pulled up in imitation of them holding unto
whilst in an actual hurricane they would point both arms
above their head like an arrow as they faced the wind at
angles to the supporting pole. Male and female versions
of course be available.
||Or a female version that slowly undressed as the wind picked up. Maybe someone would need to put some new clothes on every time.
