Wetterbot

The wetterbot is a friendly robot that tells us the weather. The name is Pam. Weather Pam.

It repeatedly fetches the current weather from the Dark Sky API. When the button on the top is pressed, it reads the current weather and the forecast for the next day while blinking with it’s eyes.

Setup

The wetterbot contains a C.H.I.P. inside. Connect the button, the LED(s) and the speaker as shown here:

Get and install CHIP_IO on the C.H.I.P. Install forecastiopy which is an API wrapper for the Dark Sky API. Copy the python files over to the C.H.I.P. and execute sudo python main.py. The bot will tell the weather once it started and then every time the button is pressed.
