Inspired by the Theory of Colours (1810) by the German poet, Goethe, and The Law of Simultaneous Colour Contract (1839) by French industrial chemist, Michel-Eugene Chevreul. The thermometer uses a combination of colours to visually indicate temperature. A network of thermoelectric Peltier units trigger a display of thermochromatic colours.

 

 

Unlike standard thermometers with numerical scales, Weather Colours creates a visual and colourful graphic display, based on the theory of warm and cool colour and colour perception. 

Through a Wi-Fi mini-processor connected to local weather forecasts, weather data is translated and then displayed in a colourful array via the network of thermoelectric Peltier units, that trigger a grid of porcelain tiles, painted with thermochromic colours.
