From the Forums: Neopixel Weather Station Desktop Gadget via @instructables
I thought it would be cool to design my own Weather Station with a larger OLED display (not the original 0.96″, I found 2.4″) and pay a lot of attention to the looks of the station. So as “enclosure” I used Acrylic sheet which I laser-cutted in the shape of a sun/cloud. My goal was to let the acrylic “glow” depending on the forecast or other criterium: red means its getting warmer, blue means its getting colder, white flashing: thunderstorm expected. Etc. Or perhaps just a pretty color you like?

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
