Hue Thunder for Philips Hue

Screenshot #1 (iPhone)
Thunder for Philips Hue done right. Finally.

Meet the most spectacular and realistic Thunder Ambiance app available for Philips Hue. It's truly immersive.

Hue Thunder provides an unique thunder simulation in various settings. Every time you start one of the ambiances it will be different and unpredictable. Al light effects have been precisely created and synced with thunder sound to create and impressive simulation with your Philips Hue setup. It will impress everyone.
Hue thunder can also be used to train pets to get used to thunder sounds and lightning flashes.

Our unique node based soundscape engine, which is behind the beautiful designed and intuitive user interface, is truly innovative. It uses techniques which are used by top game designers and audio engineers to mimic nature's way and randomness. On top of that our soundscape apps use a unique and simple to use occurrence slider to let you decide how often a specific bird or other sound is used in the preset. Still it's totally unpredictable when a specific sound is being heard therefore producing an amazingly natural sound experience. It can run for hours on end without getting repetitive like other sound engines do.
