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?

Thanks DVE for sending this in! Full project build available here on Instructables.
