The Cryoscope brings a haptic element to tomorrow's forecast by letting users feel tomorrow's expected air temperature
The Cryoscope's components
The Cryscope is an aluminum cube that indicates the forecasted temperature through touch
The Cryoscope has a temperature range of 0 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit
Given that touch is generally the best way to determine how hot or cold something is - as long as it's not too hot or cold - Rob Godshaw has come up with a device that could provide a more immediately understandable representation of tomorrow's weather than the traditional abstract number coupled with simplified symbols seen on the nightly news. His invention is an aluminum cube called the Cryoscope that adds some haptic feedback to the daily weather forecast by letting users physically feel tomorrow's temperature - at least in their fingertips.
