A traditional way to read the temperature and predict the weather.
Storm Glass - Once used by seafarers to predict oncoming storms, the storm glass barometer came into general use in the early 1700's, and responds to atmospheric fluctuations to forecast the weather. Admiral Robert Fitzroy conducted a detailed study of this instrument between 1834 and 1836.
Galileo Thermometer - In 1593, Galileo Galilei discovered that the density of liquids reacts predictably to changes in temperature. He invented a device that allowed temperature variations to be measured.

$299.95The MOVA globe ( 12cm ) is the first member of a new family of objects that come quietly to life when touched by light, without wires or batteries. The globe floats at a point of perfect balance between buoyant forces and gravitational forces, and slowly turns as it feels the force of the Earth's magnetic field and the energy carried in light. Its perpetual, quiet motion brings a tranquil point of focus to a room. Add more light and watch Jupiter spin faster, dim the setting and observe it slowing. It really is an amazing sight to see! The MOVA globe works similarly to a compass in that the Earth's magnetic field makes this work!
