AccuWeather has jumped aboard the virtual reality bandwagon by launching its own VR-compatible app.

The app, developed with Oculus, is now available for the Samsung Gear VR, and will take users on an innovative weather experience.

“The immersive technology will allow users to come face-to-face with some of nature’s most powerful storms from the comfort of their own homes,” says AccuWeather.

“A new assortment of videos will be added to the app weekly so the user experience can be refreshed to explore different types of weather phenomena.”

Aside from being at the centre of a storm, users will also find themselves able to check forecasts for their exact location in real-time.

The app aims to be both educational and exciting, while making the most of AccuWeather’s excellent forecast services.
