The weather room

Weather simulation equipment installed in a closet.

Gee, I really want to wear this mini skirt, but I just don't know if I'll feel too cold. Is it too hot for this down jacket?

With your very own weather room you can know the answers to these questions. Roof mounted data aquisition hardware will provide current weather information, and internet connectivity will provide forecasts and weather information from anywhere in the world. Try on that suede! See how it feels when the rain generators turn on full blast! See how it looks in any situation with accurate lighting provided by the luminescent walls. Try on those fishnets during an arctic blizzard. Do all of this in the comfort of your very own weather room.

Weather Simulation Room http://www.scottyrv..._house/weather.html
Apparently it only comes with one setting (tornado), so this might not be as useful as all that. [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       A ridiculous work-around. Simply step out on the balcony. (If you can't afford a balcony, how you gonna afford a weather room?)

       Open window, stick out hand.

       [DrCurry] point taken. However, a weather room would be wonderful for frequent travellers...who don't know how to properly read a weather forecast.

       Useful for hurricanes/tornados, when you're not sure if you should evacuate.
