We predict that this will win the next science fair at school

Those cool coders at Google made an Artificial Intelligence terrarium that models weather conditions around the world.

Project Oasis, as its named, allows you to use the Google Assistant tools to ask about the weather in various parts of the world.  For example, you can ask “What’s the weather like in Grand Rapids?”, and the little terrarium will mimic the location with mist to simulate fog or clouds, light and even a bit of rain. I’m thinking that if you ask it what it’s like in Grand Rapids during the winter, it probably won’t respond with snow quite yet.

Check out this quick video on how it works.

The unit is powered by a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino and you can get more details and the source code for your own little biome here.
