So, being the nerd that i am tonight i was thinking of what could i build in a oversized Altoids tin. Well i thought load it up with sensors, a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, and a pressure sensor, and a real time clock, and to use an Aduino with a RTC to wake it up every 1 hr or so to read from all the sensors and go back to sleep again. use 3 buttons for calibrating on to tell the arduino when its mild weather one for severe weather and one for calm weather (and also i could use the serial terminal to input other data values), these data values would then be stored along with the past 24 hrs of readings when the buttons is pushed . This data wound then be averaged and then used to predict upcoming weather. Data would be stored on a sd card or small flash chip (whichever is easier to interface with) information would be displayed on a serial lcd screen and the remaining 2 buttons could be used for scrolling through info (such as predicted weather and previous data recordings and also battery voltage ) now i know this is a huge task to accomplish but i hope to eventualy build this , now um lets just say my programming skills are not the best (i can make joystick controlled servos but thats about all i can do so far as i just bought an arduino a month ago ), but if anyone would love to help me that would be great , also i do actually plan to finish this so also if you had ideas for weatherproofing it , or other case designs or additional sensors , anything! i would love your feedback !!
