Weather Box

The Weather Box

Are there more enjoyable ways to check the weather without a smart phone?

The Solution

The Weather Box uses three data inputs: air temperature, relative humidity, and wind speed. The devices pulls those data points from locations across the U.S. and transmits them visually through color, movement, and wind. In the protoype you can quickly get a visual report of the weather in places like Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, Anchorage, and Hawaii.
