modelling the machine

cardboard model of the machine

I am in the process of building a model of the machine to work out scale, accessibility and design. This will be presented at the Nowcasting launch event at Loughborough University Weather Station on Sunday 23rd March, 1-4pm

The image shows the screen and light up sign on the top. To the right is a hand crank that will power the screen and to the left is the lever to choose whether to print out a prediction for the near future or 20 years time.  The dials let you input your age and what environment you live in (choosing from coast, fields, forests, desert, mountains, town, city) and the hole in the front is where the fortunes come out.
