The Thunderspace app simulating a rainstorm

The Thunderspace iOS application uses the iPhone’s camera flash and stereoscopic sound, recorded by nature sound recordist Gordon Hempton, to create an immersive, realistic rainstorm. You can choose from different types of storms, sit back and enjoy an audio-visual experience. 

While the design of the app interface is colorful and easy to use, it’s really the sensory experience design that is novel. Thunderspace has recently added a feature that connects to WiFi fans so that thunderstorms can be felt, not just heard or seen.
