Magic Vision Lab‘s weather simulator is great, but I think it needs an air conditioner slash personal sprinkler to make it more realistic.

We examined a range of weather phenomenon and how they may be simulated in a mobile augmented reality system. ARWeather was developed and deployed on the Tinmith wearable computer system to enable autonomous and free movement for the user. The user can move freely inside the simulated weather without limitation. The result of this work, the ARWeather application, has been evaluated with a user study to determine the users acceptance and draw conclusions to the applicability of augmented reality simulated weather.
