Science is Hot

Pop quiz: A liquid's density changes in proportion to its what? C: (always choose C) Temperature. You can thank Galileo for that discovery—one that was so cool someone turned it into a thermometer. Colorful glass bulbs in different weights rise or sink when the temperature of the room (and the liquid) changes, creating subtle lava lamp-style movement. They also feature tags for both Fahrenheit and Celsius. While most versions of this thermometer are cylindrical, this design is circular and sits on a handsome wood base, making it a distinct desktop conversation starter. Made in China.

Comments about UncommonGoods Galileo Globe Thermometer:

This is a very attractive design from good quality materials; however, I suspect that the globe shape (rather than the traditional tall cylinder) renders it less functional. It has been consistently over 75F, so we haven't seen it do anything yet; the markers remain crowded in the bottom. Somewhat anticlimactic for my son who has wanted one for at least a year, but maybe better luck in the fall? And possibly better outside if your home maintains a continuous climate.

Service and delivery comments:
