I have been busy creating animations for my invited talks, workshops, and conference presentations. I think that an animated and simplified introduction to a specific subject is always entertaining, but also serves the important purpose of explaining to non-experts what my work is about, why to study it, and how the methods work. It's a shame to use such animations only once, so I decided to make them available here for everyone.
During a presentation, I would usually stop any given animation rather frequently, and explain what is shown. On this website, I am not here to tell you about the animations, so I decided to split them into several short movies, and group them together into playlists.
Thus, you can consider each item in this section as one animation, and take your time to think between two movies of a given playlist. Feel free to replay each sequence if you didn't understand it right away. I have also included a few comments in the movie, so I hope they are understandable without me standing there and explaining them.
Besides movies, I have also been busy creating various still 3D images, either for publications, talks, posters, or simply to create beautiful things. Some of these pictures made it into books, others into art competitions, but most of them were custom made for my conference posters, and were therefore only shown once.
I think that's a pity, so I decided to show them here on my site. You can choose between "flat 3D" and "anaglyph 3D". The "flat 3D" you can enjoy as is, the "anaglyph 3D" pictures should be viewed with anaglyph red-cyan 3D glasses, just as some of my movies above.
Welcome to Weather VR. The movies and images below are all in 360 degrees. They are specifically made for mobile phones and invite you to have a look around by moving your phone in any direction (it also works on desktops by clicking and rotating with your mouse).
If you happen to have a Google Cardboard stereo viewer, please click on the small goggles icon in the lower right corner, and then insert your phone into the viewer. You will see everything in 3D in addition to 360 degrees.
The animations might take some time to load properly. If you feel resolution is very, please have some patience until the movies are fully loaded.
There's some new technology and developments which make virtual reality inside websites an actual reality. That's exciting. It is also a nice coincidence that I've been involved in creating some virtual reality environments for public engagement into research. The above section shows some of that work, adapted to the web. Enjoy!
