New liquid nitrogen lamp recreates weather inside your home

This is simultaneously cool and strange.

Through a mysterious combination of “some peculiar techniques, liquid nitrogen, WiFi, and high-powered vacuum suction,” the Nebula 12 creates a circulating cloud of steam that responds to real-time weather conditions outside.

4. But this way you don't actually get rain or snow, etc.

A glass roof would have the same effect as that lamp, but once the novelty wore off, you'd still be stuck with a glass roof.

5. I have something like that in my house.

I call it a "window." When you look at it, you see something similar to what the weather is outside. It's really cool.

6. This is fascinating

I am sure there are real-life applications for it, but what I first thought of is that it seems a little like the magick in the old video game Zork.

Their web site says "liquid hydrogen" not nitrogen.

Pretty sure liquid hydrogen would be a slight fire risk.
