Before looking out the window, look at your fluffy pillow which is ready with the day’s weather conditions

Technology development is apparently a ‘brainiac’s’ domain but presentation of technology in novel and imaginative modes is the playfield of someone known as a creative technologist. Katie Koepfinger, an interactive designer and creative technologist from NYC in collaboration with Burcum Turkmen and team has developed a way of viewing weather that does away with extra details and is very ‘soft’ and direct.

 Presenting the Fluffy Forecast, a glanceable networked weather notification system which connects pertinent household items to thereby enabling them to provide users with simple reminders. The system’s main interface is embedded in a decorative pillow which provides weather data as soon as the user awakens. The concept behind the project was to move from the conventional method of weather reading from screen based devices to something which is more natural and a larger part of daily living.

The team’s pre-development research indicated that most people like to check out weather conditions for the day ahead first thing in the morning and they do so by taking note of the most basic weather data and details. This prolific investigation led to the team’s developing of a soft pillow which displays weather in a pictorial and creative fashion which is not only accurate but very uniquely presented. This unique presentation makes the device highly desirable for the morning routine with the quality of bringing some cheer to the day’s start.
