Ken Kawamoto is a software engineer who spends his evenings inventing gadgets. His latest creation is the Tempescope, a little glass box that produces real raindrops and clouds, and simulates lightning and sunlight to provide tomorrow’s forecast or a real-time weather reading.
The Tempescope interfaces with online forecasts to learn the weather, so you can even use it to learn the forecast for a travel destination.
Kawamoto is launching a crowd funding campaign for the Tempescope, but he’s already released the code and design on open source, so curious minds can build their own!
The only drawback to this incredible design? The Tempescope can’t create snow, making it useless to most Canadians for, oh, about six months of the year.
