The RainCloud Umbrella Minder

The RainCloud is a web-connected smart umbrella holder. Built around the LittleBits Cloud Bit, the RainCloud allows you to tell with a glance if you need to bring your umbrella with you for the day! A 3D-printed stand holds the umbrella, and features a subtle EL-wire pattern that illuminates if rain is imminent. If you're very forgetful, the RainCloud will even ping your phone to inform you that you've left you umbrella behind if you leave home without it on a potentially rainy day.

Parts and Instructions

A list of all needed parts, as well as detailed instructions on how to build the RainCloud is available on my website: http://www.jeremyblum.com/2014/07/23/raincloud/

To Do...

  • I should probably setup log rotation for the listening service, and clean up the format of the log entries
  • I'd like to add integration with Yo, for when you forget your umbrella
You can’t perform that action at this time.
