Smart displays for homes are making home better and good looking as well. So is the new weather paper poster Typified. The other weather info type techs are things are not quite like the Weather Poster, from designer Oli Woods and his company, Typified. The project looks to combine traditional art with modern technology to produce a smart display. But it is limited, when it comes to the functionality.

Besides the less functional options, Typified has nicer-looking and less unmistakable than just hanging a screen on your wall. This screen printed poster uses smart ink and a tiny internet connected computer to reflect the day’s changing weather.

While coming to functional system of Typified, as the weather forecast changes, so will the ink on the paper. The icons take 5-15 minutes to fully activate and will update throughout the day as needed.

He Weather Poster does only one thing: it shows you the upcoming weather forecast for the day. It’s not a particularly detailed forecast. it has just a single icon of whether to expect rain, clouds, or sun at 8AM, 12PM, 4PM, and 8PM for that day.  But the Weather Poster wins out by looking like the sort of thing you might actually want to hang in your home.
