Cumul.us – social weather prediction

18 11 2007


Cumul.us is a website that allows people to speculate on the weather, and say what they are going to wear today.

Peoples predictions are averaged with data from 3 different weather feeds (apparently this number is to increase) to give an overall prediction for the temperature and weather later that day. If you predict correctly, you get points – currently these don’t do anything, but it’s good to see how well you are doing!

The site is designed using a CSS layout – non trivial for the style of the site, it feels very free-form.

Targeted adverts even allow you to buy the products that are recommended to wear each day! A well executed mash up of different data sources.

Not many users at the moment, but seems a brilliant idea!

Currently I have a score of 67 – beat that!
