Moocast / Products and Applications


Moocast is a table top device inspired from historic ways of weather forecasting, where farmers looked for signs of bad weather in the behavioural changes of their animals. Cows were particularly believed to predict arrival of bad weather, now a scientifically proven fact.
Moocast knows the context, connected to your smartphone it gathers events of the day from your calendar and informs you about the weather. Inspired from the notion of Calm Technology, Moocast always remains in the periphery of your attention. It detects user presence by its camera and displays weather forecast based on the users events and location.
