About the E-Motion Cone

Designed by New York architect Shashi Caan and lighting designer Matthew Tanteri, Carnegie Science Center’s trademark E-Motion cone was installed in 2000 with a computerized lighting system to display different colored lights on the cone based on forecasted weather.

WTAE-TV controls the color displayed on E-Motion, matching the color to the weather anticipated for the following day.

  • Red lights on E-Motion indicate warmer weather
  • Blue lights indicate cooler weather
  • Green lights indicate no anticipated change
  • Yellow lights warn of severe weather
  • Flashing color indicates a likelihood of precipitation
