The Cryoscope – a haptic weathervane.

Syncing with Wi-Fi to online weather reports, you can touch this aluminum cube to actually feel the outside temperature (up to 100° F) rather than simply reading about it through numbers or whimsical sunshine icons.

It’s exciting to see this kind of technology out in the wild. I remember talking about a similar concept for a map interface over 3 years ago – imagine dragging your finger over a map to feel the temperature in different regions (i.e. cold mountain ranges or heat in the southwest). It’s coming.
