The Weather Channel on Microsoft Surface


Screens.Still002Andy Drooker and Crispin Southwell from The Weather Channel were in our booth at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference demonstrating an application that they built for Microsoft Surface. It is amazingly deep with detailed information when you look at cities, and there are several mapping overlays that can even show animated views of the weather as it is happening.

I can see this being a popular application at hotels or airports where travelers can get timely weather information where they are and where they are going. This September, the application will be featured in a new show coming to The Weather Channel. Stay tuned for more info.

    Nice application. But I miss all the Surface specific features: Multi User, Object Recognition, 360° User.

    In fact this app could also run at a 200$ touch screen.
