Tempescope Recreates Outside Weather In A Little Box

June 9, 2015

The Tempescope is the brainchild of designer Ken Kawamoto and can recreate current outdoor weather conditions right on your desktop. The box downloads the upcoming forecast from the internet and is capable of producing different sunlight effects, clouds, rain and lightning. The Tempescope is currently an opensource project, but will be launched as a Kickstarter campaign later this year. Alternatively, look out a window for the weather. My apartment has tons of windows. Okay, my apartment has one window. Fine, that window is actually the door, and it's always locked. *rattling bars* Holy shit I live in somebody's dungeon.

Keep going for several more shots and a video of the box making weather.

Thanks to LAB, who can control the weather through a series of complicated dances.

    I was about to say that in Phoenix that would be the most dull box ever - but also when you did see rain it would be exciting for kids. Oooh the box thing is doing something? Plus, what about heat lightning? Hmmm

    I guess the sand/dust/flying feces comes separately.
