Weather canvas

weather

Another Cornell final project, Weather Canvas aims to make watching the weather a little more pleasant. Data is captured via a thermometer, humidity sensor, anemometer, and a Hotwheels radar gun turned precipitation sensor. Once it’s captured, it’s transmitted to the LED matrix inside which displays pretty patterns to convey the weather conditions. They have set images, like icons, that mean different things.

    Fail. The writeup doesn’t explain how they managed to get the display circuit to hover above the anemometer… :)

  7. That sounds really cool!
