Bora-Mat: Simulatore DIY di Bora Triestina

Our Bora simulator has three powerful electric fans (normally used for big inflatable structures) producing a strong airflow, controlled by Arduino and some sensors, to recreate the effect of Trieste's Bora wind and its blasts. You can choose between "Light Bora" or "Dark Bora" (i.e. mixed with rain). The simulator is contained within a structure reproducing a classical view of Trieste, and the Bora wind is blowing from a window.

Bora-Mat: Simulatore DIY di Bora Triestina

MARCO BARUZZO, CARLO FONDA, SARA SOSSI, GAYA FIOR, ERIKA RONCHIN, ENRIQUE CANESSA

The authors work at the Scientific Fablab of the Abdus Salam Internation centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, and they are all able to feel on themselves the power of the Bora wind. The idea to merge this cultural element very typical of their town with the modern technologies, to allow everyone to feel it everywhere, was born in front of a glass of spriz in Ponterosso square, on a windy day.
