Feel tomorrow's air temperature today

Feel tomorrow's air temperature today

Robb Godshaw an Engineer at Syyn Labs has created a haptic weather forecasting device called the Cryoscope that allows you to actually feel what tomorrow's weather forecast will be like today.

Controlled by an Arduino board, the device has a range of 0-100 degrees Fahrenheit (neutral state of the cube is about 85°F(30°C)) and enables users to simply touch the aluminum cube casing that has been heated or cooled to the appropriate temperature forecast by a Peltier element, heat sink and cooling fan system.

The Cryoscope fetches weather data from the internet and users can update and change the forecast location through a web app. An RGB Led is also provided at the base of the device to visually gauge the current temperature of the unit.
