If you're looking for a quick way to get weather reports from your Raspberry Pi, we just came up with a super fast way to put a weather station together with everyone's favourite fruit-based 'puter at its core.
Step 1: Disengage the Pi from its transportation receptacle.
Step 2: Install the Pi within the central vicinity of an outward-facing fenestration.
Step 3: Perform a visual assessment of the real-time data.
Step 4: Go to Step 1
Nope, it's not raining. It works!
I have a Raspberry Pi 3, doing nothing right now... (Well, to be honest, I have every edition Pi laying around, doing nothing.)
However, not all my Pi boards have been doing nothing... here are some of my previous projects:
For the Raspberry Pi 3, I want to start with one of my back burner projects. A portable and wireless Raspberry Pi.
- I want something small and with a screen.
- Wireless charging, while it's on or off.
- A case to mount it all in.
It occurred to me that for decades now, phones have done all this. So, why not a Raspberry Pi?
I took inventory of some of my components laying around and drew up a possible design for the Portable&Wireless Pi (PWP, from now on).
The PWP drawing is taken from one of my project notebooks. I will explain what everything means in the drawing... trust me, it (probably) works.
What does this scribble mean!?!? Find out in the next post...
