Collective Weather is thrilled to announce the launch of Tornado Vision, its first augmented reality (AR) weather mobile app. The app is designed to provide a heads-up display with critical severe weather data by simply looking at any storm. It features the use of augmented reality to provide accurate data.
Augmented Reality (AR) is all about modifying a real-world environment to create an interactive experience from the addition of visual elements, sensory stimuli, or sound. By integrating augmented reality into the Tornado Vision app, Collective Weather will give users an in-depth analysis of the storm approaching.
“We believe augmented reality will help give people better situational awareness to make more informed decisions when severe weather is near,” commented Scott Olson, CEO of Collective Weather. “Weather radar itself is still too hard for the average person to read and only tells you a single layer of data. With Tornado Vision, you can get a full picture just by looking at the storm with your phone.” He added.
The Tornado Vision app displays the chance of a tornado, hail, and severe wind when looking at a storm using augmented reality. It also warns users of their closeness to a tornado or severe thunderstorm while issuing out warnings. Tornado Vision displays a breakdown of a tornado or hail distance, size, and speed.
Other useful features of the augmented reality weather app from Collective Weather include:
- Four specially designed camera filters help bring out tornadoes hiding in the rain.
- Night mode automatically captures hidden night-time tornadoes
- Data on storm characteristics, including rotation, maximum hail size, and lightning flash rate
- Enhanced meteorological, environmental data showing storm-relative helicity, CAPE, and bulk shear.
Tornado Vision is an effective solution to stay ahead of the weather, understand weather reports, and get detailed analysis of weather conditions even on the go. The app is now available on the Google Play Store for Android devices and the Apple App Store for iOS devices.
