A coat hook which tells you the weather. No, I am not kidding. It is true!
This DIY makes you build your own weather forecasting coat hook, so that you never leave your home unprepared for the showers or over dressed in the heat. There are dials, to tell you the minimum, maximum and current temperature. There are pictures, corresponding to the weather which light up and ensure you’re all set to weather the storm!
For this project, you are going to need quite a few things but then it is all going to be worth it. For the complete list of hardware and tools and assembly, check out the source link. Each weather condition has a corresponding image. The corresponding LED will light up, illuminating the required film slide. You can get the files for 3D printing and laser cuttings, in the blog.
You can get detailed instructions to build the circuit, calibrate servos and code, in the link below. The weather forecast data is gathered from OpenWeatherMap. It works with any microcontroller which can be programmed using Arduino’s IDE and can support Wi-Fi. The program makes an HTTP request for data and look s for specific information. This project will be making use of Intel Edison. To set it up, check out the link. But before that, do watch this video.
Have a good day!
