Giving a nice display to a weather-o-matic

Having weather data is almost as important as knowing time. So weather station is a second device after clock at home, isn’t it? How to make it eye catching and easy to understand at the glance. Martin seems to be found an interesting solution. He built analog display for weather device. On display face you can see couple arrows indicating weather conditions while another displays temperature. Behind the scene you will find MSP430G2553 microcontroller which drives two servo motors where arrows are attached. It gets weather data from PS via UART. On PC a python script simply fetches the weather data from Internet. After such success, Martin plans to push project towards Raspberry Pi, so there would be no need for PC. Continue reading
