A Bicycle Barometer

Bicycle Barometer

Made a thing that parses weather data into a bicycle barometer

A cyclist in London wanted to simplify his morning commute decision making between riding bike or taking the Tube. So he made a barometer with an old clock case. A servo moves the needle towards the bike or Tube and is controlled by a nanode controller that derives a value from the web. To take small chunks of information from the Web and display it on a physical thing it’s geeky enough, bonus to incorporate the bike. That’s a bike Maker and something we’d like to see at another Built.

It should always point to bike.

That should simplify production costs.

Even fair-weather cyclist here in Seattle. Most interesting is the code is parsing many measurements into one point.
