Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

In an inspired bit of computer brilliance, Canadian Sean Carney has built a clock... that tells the weather.

While most of us would simply open a window to tell if it's raining, the weather in Winnipeg, Manitoba can get a bit fierce at times. And plus, it's just cool.

Currently the two settings that can be changed online are the hours that the clock will update between (so I don’t hear the motors working late at night) and whether the temperature hand shows the ambient temperature or a windchill adjusted temperature.

Read all about the weather clock, including the code for building your own, at Sean Carney's blog > http://www.seancarney.ca/blog/2010/01/10/the-weather-clock-is-finis...

From Sean's Flickr page:

"A video of the clock being turned on, receiving and displaying the current weather, and showing how the web interface of the clock allows setting changes.

Here I changed the temperature to include the windchill and then returned it to unadjusted temperature."

That's brilliant. I have a few old barometers but I love the marriage of old and new.
