Airport Climate Portal Let You Feel the Weather at Your Destination

by Shane McGlaun

I’m from Texas, so if you tell me the weather at some far away location I am traveling is hot, I can relate. If you tell me it’s really cold wherever I am heading I might have a hard time wrapping my mind around anything colder than freezing. If you are traveling, looking at a weather report can only tell you so much. This is where these cool weather pods installed at the Arlanda airport in Stockholm, Sweden come in.

You tell the pods where you are going and they look up the forecast for you. The system then uses heaters, AC units, misters, fans, and audiovisual cues to cook up weather almost just like what’s going on at your destination so you can feel what it will be like.

If you aren’t dressed warmly enough, you can have a jacket handy when you get off the plane or run over and buy something at one of the overpriced airport shops.
