Weather Gets 3D Gaming Makeover

According to a report by the BBC, video gaming graphics technology is set to transform how BBC weather is done. "A version of 3D software Weatherscape XT has been developed by New Zealand firm Metra and the BBC to give viewers a realistic-looking forecast.

The virtual reality technology takes constantly-updated data and translates it into 3D images. The new forecasts will be on air from early next year."
