Gorgeous ‘Tide Clock’ Indicates Temp, Forecast, & Tide Levels – also Planetary Gears! | #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

This project by Boston-based Fin Hopkins looks amazing! Would love to see a Fritzing diagram or schematic for the build, as well as a repository of the code running the device (hint! hint! 😀 ).

I built this thing! It’s a device for showing current temperature and weather conditions, as well as high temp, low temp, hourly forecast, and the low tides for the day.

I made this as a gift for my in-laws, who are watching the kids a ton this summer at their cottage in Maine. Up in Maine, one is only approximately interested in the weather: “Is it a good day to take the kids to the beach?” “When is the best time to take a kayak out?” “Can we have dinner at the picnic table or will it rain?”

So, this kinda shows the temperature, kinda what the weather will be, and kinda when the tides will happen. Which is perfect for summer vacation.
