Airport Pods Let You Feel the Weather at Your Destination

Do you hate when you get off a plane and immediately realize you didn't dress well for the weather? An airport in Sweden wants to solve this problem. To promote its connections to many international destinations, Stockholm Arlanda Airport built three pods that simulate different climates around the world in real time. Stockholm Arlanda is doing this for promotional reasons, but there could be a practical application here: Previewing the weather where you're going will give you a better idea of what you need to be prepared. The weather simulators are all hooked up to weather data in the cloud (no pun intended) and allow people inside to experience the weather in those locations in real time. The pods are equipped with heaters and air conditioners to simulate temperature conditions, and wind simulators and misters to add to the realism. It's like stepping through a door into another world.
