Our NBC10 Boston First Alert Weather Team is bringing you inside the weather forecast with augmented reality, the latest technology we've embraced, from Storm Ranger mobile radar to our own computer Forecast System.
Augmented reality brings a realistic perspective to our forecasts, showing you everything from the beach to Fenway Park, even inside a hurricane with a storm-chasing plane.
The graphics are built from scratch. The technology works by overlaying 3D objects onto what the camera sees, which is coded to active augmented reality at certain times during the forecast.
In the studio, it looks like we're standing next to nothing. But on TV, it looks just like we're in the room with the graphic.
So keep watching NBC10 Boston for the most interactive weather forecasts in town!
