Weather gadget makes temps crystal clear

Meteorology meets good looks.

Oregon Scientific

The weather seems to be on people's minds a lot lately, and tech companies are responding in kind . Even better, the individual weather stations that have become so popular in recent years are finally beginning to get some interesting designs , unlike so many previous products that looked like they belonged at a Coast Guard station.

Case in point: The "Crystal Weather Station," which blends Oregon Scientific's meteorological expertise with a decidedly un-institutional look that features "laser engraved 3D icons in crystal," according to Newlaunches. It's still at the conceptual stages, but knowing how fast the company churns out devices like this, we're betting it won't be long before it comes to market. The best part? You can change the display from time to temperature with the wave of a hand.
