Jon Atherton has unveiled a new Bluetooth weather station he has created called the Stormtag that comes complete with a smartphone companion application and is capable of measuring both temperature and barometric pressure within your local environment to provide you with an accurate weather forecast for the surrounding area.
The Stormtag companion application can be loaded onto your smartphone or tablet and has been designed to send your data back for crowd source weather data analysis helping other using the Stormtag build a bigger picture of the global weather systems.
The Stromtag project is just about to start a two-year worldwide project to build and enhance the crowd sourced weather system that is currently under development. for more information about the system and the companion Android and iOS applications watch the video below.
“What if you could be part of a team that changed the way our climate was analysed? We’re about to start a 2 year worldwide project to perfect crowd sourced weather data, and we need your commitment to help us.
Wouldn’t it be great to carry a weather station on your keyring? Now you can. Not only do you get a great weather station for yourself, but your StormTag will contribute meaningful data that is open for scientific analysis.
Stormtag is set to revolutionise weather data collection, and as our App collects that data we’ll begin to provide you with some weather predictions in real time, even without an internet connection.”
The Stormtag System is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough funds to make the jump from concept into reality. So if you would like to take part in this revolutionary new Bluetooth weather forecasting project make a pledge now and become one of the first to own a Stormtag device.
