Forecast on the Wall is a internet connected embedded device that automatically retrieves the coming day's forecast including: High and Low temperature, humidity and chance of rain displayed using a LCD screen and a RainMeter. Go on a day trips to nearby city? Add the location to Forecast on the Wall to check when before you leave the house!
Rhyme & Reason: I was inspired by my interest in home automation, building of embedded systems(software controlling hardware!) and being rained on one to many while riding my motorcycle.
