Wear the weather as a bracelet

Posted to Data Art  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

We all know that data is the new sexy, so it’s only natural for data to find its way into jewelry. This weather bracelet represents a year of temperatures and rain. Peak heights are mapped to minimum and maximum daily temperatures, and the holes in the sides represent weekly rainfall.

Trust me. Data is going to be the next hot thing moving across the fashion runways in Milan. Weather bracelets not your thing? How about a lovely necklace pendant?

[Thanks, Tom]
