The Nebula Project: Recreating outdoor weather indoors

Micasa Lab in Zurich has created the Nebula 12 weather station, which takes meterological data from UK weather forecast service MetOff and presenst weather predictions for the next 48 hours in an indoors space. Which means a threatening low-pressure area is represented by a red cloud made by combining liquid nitrogen with hot water, while sunshine shows up in yellow. Users can tweak the settings using WIFI and their smartphone, plus use the cloud as a source of light. Here’s a perk: these looming dark clouds won’t rain indoors.
