BloomSky has developed a new style of weather station which uses digital cloud computing to provide you with a more accurate local weather forecast directly on your smartphone using the BloomSky companion application.
The BloomSky ‘hyperlocal” weather station enables users to share real-time data and sky images via a crowdsourced network. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the BloomSky weather station project and see it in action.
The BloomSky weather station consists of both an indoor and outdoor wireless module which is equipped with an ultra wide angle HD camera with built-in 45 degree adjustable shooting angles and which turns on at dawn and off at dusk.
The weather station has five senses making it capable of measuring temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, UV exposure, and precipitation.
The BloomSky weather application supports both Android and iOS devices and enables you to access data collected from BloomSky outdoor and indoor module as well as view snapshot taken by the BloomSky camera, which automatically updates every 3-5 minutes.
“We will be using Amazon’s cloud service to host all the data. As of now, we are testing the stability of the cloud. We plan to use three months for debugging our server, starting from the launch of this project. Our team have previous experience working with cloud servers that host the data of millions of users, this process will ensure a better app experience with more stability.”
