WeatherOrb

An Arduino-powered ambient weather orb.

WHAT IS IT?

WeatherOrb is two parts:

  1. The first is a simple webapp that pulls the weather (Sydney-only, for now) from Yahoo Weather, via YQL. It then provides a simple web view of current and forecasted weather. It also provides dumbed-down xml of the weather for...

  2. An Arduino-powered ambient weather lamp. It uses the standard Arduino-board, along with an Ethernet shield, and a couple BlimkM color LEDs. The Arduino parses the above XML at regular intervals and changes the color of the LEDs to match the forecast.

WHAT IS NEXT?

  • I'd like to add some IP-based geo targeting so that we grab the local feed, rather than hard-coding the location.
  • I'm not happy with the temperature to color mapping.
