Station display improvements

I now have the real-time station display working almost perfectly. It can be read on my Android running Nook from across the room, indicates which items changed since the last refresh, along with increase/decrease indicators, and the old value. Only…

Next big Android/Weather Station feature

As always, its the magic behind the image that is the cool part here. A constantly updating display screen, inside the basic applications framework. The new bits here are that the screen runs as a separate intention, scrolls between all…

Gauge detail screen up and running

Thanks to the code from Ivan Memruk at Mind The Robot, and refinements done by Freddy Martens at atstechlab, I made some additional tweeks to get a reasonable detail gauge for the weather. I still have more work to do on the…

Android Weather Display, updated

Made a bunch of progress on the Weather Display. I started with Weather Underground data, since I send data from several of my SensorPacks there. I don’t send information from all my SensorPacks there, only ones actually measuring outdoor conditions.…

Android weather display

First step, grabbing data sent to Weather Underground from several of my SensorPacks. You’ll note the humidity sensor went out on one sensor, and the second is tracking a slightly higher than realistic humidity, compared to “03”, which is a…

Sensor display on a TFT Touchscreen

Here’s a demo of data from the SensorPacks being displayed on a TFT Touchscreen/shield I picked up from Adafruit. Writing a simple UI via graphics primitives reminded me of building UI’s back in the day, where all you have are…

LED strip project

Wired up an LED light strip I got from Adafruit, and tweaked the example software, here’s the result..

Big LED display in action

I realized I’d never gotten around to posting a picture or video of the display station actually working. I’ve had this running for nearly a year now, first on a breadboard, and then via the shift register circuit board I…

LED Driver board

After building a display station, based on some really nice 6.5″ LED’s I got from SparkFun, I found that wiring it up was straighforward, but quite messy, using a breadboard. A lot of wires to connect, a lot of resistors.…

Multi-display weather monitor

Using several serial LED displays, I expanded my earlier single-display monitor. This uses an XBee to receive information sent from a computer from one or more SensorPacks, and show the current time (sent from the computer, I didn’t want to…
