We can find particles so small there is discussion whether they exist at all, but we can’t figure out whether a politician is lying or not (hint: if the lips are moving, they’re likely lying). We know gravity is everywhere but we don’t know why or how or who or what put it there.
Then, there’s the weather. It’s everywhere and affects us all. Everyone complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it. If you’re a Mac user, here’s the coolest way yet to bring a 3D version of earth and visual weather right to your Mac’s screen. And it’s cheap.
It’s called MeteoEarth, and it seems as if there’s a version available for anything that plugs into an electrical outlet or uses a battery; Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android devices, Windows PCs, even those cheap Amazon tablets and phones that no one uses.
In short, it’s a weather app, from people who develop weather apps for television stations. MeteoEarth mixes a bit of high tech game technology to the graphics on your device and you get a 3D earth with an option to view the weather in your area almost in real time.
The graphics and detail in MeteoEarth are stunning.
You’ll be able to see precipitation as it nears your location, view temperatures locally or almost anywhere in the world, check wind conditions, watch cloud cover, track low and high pressure weather systems, and, if you don’t mind forking over a few more dollars, even track storms and get longer term weather forecasts.
MeteoEarth is mesmerizing to view, and gives you an insight into weather development like you’ve never seen before. While the data displayed isn’t exactly real time, it’s close enough to be useful and attractive.
