Meteo Cube

The weather forecast can be displayed on a selected face by rotating and twisting some parts of the cube. Weather parameters like temperature minimum and maximum, sky condition, precipitation probability, wind strength and direction can be displayed simultaneously. The cube can also be customized with a location lable of choice. In the initial state the cube shows a weather forecast with temperatures ranging from a minimum of +10° C and a maximum of +20° C, sunny sky, a precipitation probability of 0% and no wind.

The layout of the Meteo Cube was created in 2013 by Stefan Berinde and Walter Randelshofer. The weather pictograms are copyright © 2013 by meteoblue AG, meteoblue.com. The pictograms are used with permission.
