On the docket today is a simple Arduino project – a WiFi weather display that shows the day’s temperature and has an indicator for sun, clouds and precipitation.
An Arduino-compatible, WiFi microcontroller receives weather data from the IFTTT service. The temperature is displayed on a four digit display, and each of the three indicators light up a triangular segment.
Like the Giftduino project we featured yesterday, this project doesn’t have many features but it’s still a great build. The modern design is a big plus too, as it wouldn’t look out of place in a carefully made home.
If you’d like a piece of functional wall electronics that’s more advanced, we’d suggest looking into the new wave of DIY smart mirrors. We’ve featured versions based on a Raspberry Pi and a tablet conversion in the past.
These could also display the weather as well as anything else you’d like, if you’re willing to spend more time and money putting it together.
