This big blue beast was parked just outside The Verge trailer at CES 2012, and is part of the three-truck Doppler on Wheels mobile radar network operated by The Center for Severe Weather Research. Each truck has (obviously) a rear-mounted radar dish that feeds real-time atmospheric data into the cab; supplementing the radar information, the CSWR team also uses ground-based tornado pods. The combined data help scientists understand the origin and structure of tornadoes, and the fleet's also deployed to study hurricanes. Go inside with our video tour below.
