Hardware Explorations at a Software Company

Ever wished you could graph data on an entire wall? We wanted to pull data out of our computers by using a physical installation to show sets of time-series data. Our data and analytics team was keen to chart all sorts of metrics, but we eventually settled on a giant, mechanical, one-of-a-kind installation that moves, illuminates, and constantly updates to show the predicted weather forecast for the next 15 hours at our different office locations. We call it the Temper-o-meter.
