This certainly beats the TV weather man in aesthetics! Tempo Drop is a modern take on a storm glass, a natural way to forecast the weather. Available in small or large sizes, Tempo Drop is a sealed glass container filled with a liquid compound. Gazing at the transforming liquid interior will give you a rough indication of weather conditions.
It is made from glass, camphor, ethanol and a compound of other liquids, harking back to the historical storm glass devices that the likes of Charles Darwin once trusted and used. But we think you'll agree that the look is still decidedly modern and chic. While of course it can't ever be as accurate or reliable as a barometer or actual meteorological forecast, you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful way to tell you how mother nature is doing.
