Tempescope Puts the Weather on Your Table Beth Snyder June 23, 2015 Extras There are multiple ways you can get a weather forecast, from TV to newspapers to online to apps… Heck, even Facebook lets you know what the weather is doing, if only by means of your friends’ posts. One of my favourite things is the native weather app on my phone. I don’t know why, but I am entirely too fascinated by the flash of lighting, the rain falling, and the snow piling up. Tempescope is a weather forecasting gadget that puts the outside weather in your house, so you can get a graphic representation of what will happen. But it doesn’t just give you a picture, it actually makes the weather happen, contained in a box on your table. Tempescope receives forecast information from the internet, then translates that into sunshine, rain, clouds, sunrise, sunset, and even thunderstorms with lightning. If you’re going to take a trip, you can set Tempescope to give you the weather forecast for wherever you’re going, or you can (of course) leave it set to your current location. You can also set it for real-time, current weather or on a time delay for near future forecasts. Ken Kawamoto designed Tempescope, and has done so as an open source project. The design schematics are available online if you’d like to try your hand at making one of your own, or later this year he plans to crowdfund units for sale. No word yet on how much they’ll cost, however. Check out the video to see Tempescope in action. It’s really pretty neat! Source: Gajitz Share This With The World!
