About the E-Motion Cone

E-Motion, referred to as the Weather Cone, was 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 the Weather Cone, matching the color to the anticipated weather.

  • Red lights indicate warmer weather
  • Blue lights indicate cooler weather
  • Green lights indicate no anticipated change
  • Yellow lights warn of severe weather
