Electronics enthusiasts, makers and hobbyists that would like to create their own portable weather station might be interested in a new project which has been published by Adafruit that takes advantage of the fantastic code created by Daniel Eichhorn.
Using a 3D printer case together with a 2.4″ TFT touchscreen and an ESP8266, the portable weather station offers everything you need to know to help you through your day and is a pocket sized wireless weather station that you can build yourself and offers a four-day forecast complete with moon phases.
Watch the video below to learn more about the project and how easy it is to build using the code which has already been written and supplied by Daniel. You’ll need the following parts to build this project :
– 2.4″ TFT Feather Wing 320×240 Touchscreen
– Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 WiFi
– 2000mAh Rechargeable Battery (Optional)
– Slide Switch (Optional)
In this project we’ll show you how to make a WiFi enabled, portable Weather Station using an ESP8266. The software, written by Daniel Eichhorn, uses the Wunderground API to pull weather data. It shows the date, time, current weather conditions, 4-day forecast and even moon phases. The user interface features lovely typography and icons that makes really a clean layout. The 2.4” TFT Feather Wing combined with the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 make assembling this project incredibly easy.
