The weather clock

The weather clock


From the MAKE Flickr pool

Sean built a digital weather display with a very analog feel -

I took an old clock, removed the mechanism and replaced it with an Arduino (micro-controller) that checks the weather on the Environment Canada website every fifteen minutes and update the hands accordingly. It also has a web server so I can check the weather and update the settings from a web browser.

He notes that the lowest temp the clock can display isn’t quite as low it goes in his neck of the woods. Yowza – it gets mighty cold in Winnipeg! For more info & source code check out the project’s blog entry.
