Weather Vane Lets Users Feel How Cold It Is
The Cryoscope is a tactile device that conveys how warm it is in different locations on the surface of an aluminum cube.
Instead of reading the temperature, this tactile weather vane allows you to feel it. Robb Godshaw’s ‘Cryoscope‘ translates forecasted temperatures into a physical sensation, letting you experience current or future weather in different locations.
The 5″ aluminum cube features a metal slab that heats up or cools, and the contact surface has a temperature range of 32°F to 108°F (0°C to 42°C). The Cryoscope has two main modes of operation. The thermal time shift enables the device to convey future temperatures for any location you specify, allowing you to use it for your morning clothing choices. The thermal space shift lets the device convey the current temperature of anywhere you specify, so you can stay connected to your childhood home or the current city of your significant other. The Cryoscope is currently on display in the Smart Home Green+Wired exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. Check out the video below to learn more about it:
