Make Clouds in your Home with the Nebula Weather StationWhen I think of a weather station, I think of radar domes and hydrometers. You know, things to measure the weather. Not make it. But the Nebula Weather Station, a cool bit of concept hardware in the shape of a hanging lamp, turns that assumption on its head. Sure, it still keeps an eye on the weather, thanks to it being connected to the internet. But it has a rather novel method of telling you what it sees: the Nebula Weather Station recreates the weather.
If it's bright and sunny outside, the Nebula will shine nice and brightly. Like a sun. If its cloudy, well, it has a cloud machine built in. The clouds dissipate before hitting the floor, so you're left with a cloud hanging from your ceiling. Quite an interesting effect, to say the least.
To keep the device from being redundant, the weather isn't what's currently outside. You don't need a cloud if you can see them out your window. Rather, it pulls up to 48 hours of weather in advance, and lets you see what's coming up. This is all thanks to a connection with your (Lumia) smartphone.
So, its doubtful that this will ever reach production. Projects like this are usually more interesting in theory than in practice, and function best as a momentary gimmick. But still, its hard to question how cool this device is. Watch the video embedded below for more.
