Computer: Algorithm
Radar 2.0   (+1, -1)  [vote for, against]
Weather radar with sound.

This is an algorithm which imparts corresponding sounds to a weather doppler radar animation. It takes your location in the radar and assigns a series of values for your condition: temperature, wind, rain, etc. Every frame now shares a corresponding ambient sound. The sounds are put together with the frames and the result is Radar 2.0. Now you can really hear the storm coming!

Interesting concept at first... somehow transposing the radar image to sound. Then you introduced temperature, wind rain etc which basically confused the idea.

I think the first sentance alone is a fine idea.

I looked but couldn't find information on a guy who does something similar to this pointing a (laser I think?) at the clouds and translates the reflections into sound. Saw it on discovery channel.

Do you mean like, for example, a musical piece? Where the tempo correlates to temperature, key is sun (minor key for thunder or wind)...

People who have their own doppler radar devices generally don't need anything "2.0'd" for comprehension.
