• Individual assignment:

I think that would be very interesting if other people tried to make a version of this installation. Using the FabLab’s tools should be easy to recreate, remix or repurpose the contents of this project.

I tried to search for similar projects and it happens that there is one really similar to this desktop version. It’s a project from Google Creative Lab called Oasis:

“Project Oasis is a voice controlled terrarium that recreates outside weather inside a box. You can talk to it to ask about weather or ask it to create certain conditions. It currently recreates rain, clouds and lighting in a self sufficient closed and living ecosystem.”

Smaller and desktop versions could be very cool as a weather monitor for other cities, like if you’re planning a trip or go surfing very often. This is the only “version” that could actually turn into a product and be sold as such.

I’ll leave all the plans, project sheets, files and tips for anyone who might be interested in this page.
