According to the gizmag website, people from Swiss design studio micasa LAB have developed a kind of home weather station - called Nebula 12 - that relies on real weather information to produce real clouds indoors.

According to the publication, instead of Nebula 12 working like conventional dry-ice machines, the station uses liquid hydrogen and hot water to produce vapor clouds, which are released by a luminaire that combines different intensities and light colors to indicate the different weather conditions. Thus, a yellow light informs that the day will be sunny, while a reddish hue indicates the arrival of rain.

Weather information is transmitted wirelessly to the station via a smartphone, and the indicated weather conditions reflect forecasts for the next 48 hours. Weather information is provided - by default - by the British weather service, but both the data source and the conditions reproduced by Nebula 12 can be customized to your preference.
