The Visual Weather Report
swackettÂ® is a whole new way to look at the weather. We convert complex weather data to easily-understood, visual weather reports designed for people of every age. Our unique approach is to combine raw weather data (current conditions, radar, and detailed forecasts) with thoughtfully crafted people symbols (called â€śpeepsâ€ť) who always appear appropriately dressed for the weather.
If it happens to be cold outside, swackettÂ® peeps appear dressed in winter hats, coats and boots. A hot, sunny day? swackettÂ® peeps appear wearing shorts and sunglasses â€” and they even remember to bring along drinking water and sunblock. Rain? swackettÂ® peeps appear with rain jackets and an umbrella.
This is a fun, fresh and truly useful weather report experience for people of any age.
