Every day, web developers are doing new and amazing things with WebGL (opens in new tab), a new web technology that brings hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to the browser without installing additional software. But this mindblowing interactive experiment especially grabbed our attention.

The demo (opens in new tab), which will only work in modern browsers (we'd recommend the latest version of Chrome (opens in new tab)) and on a computer with a decent graphics card, puts you in the eye of a storm, and enables you to change the direction of the extreme weather event via a series of controls on the top-left of the screen.

Although it's recreating a weather event, to sci-fi fans like us it's very reminiscent of the "time tunnel" credit sequence at the start of Doctor Who (opens in new tab), which just made us like it more!
