The RSS Weather Reader is a home-brew device that goes onto the Internet, finds information about the current weather conditions, and then prints the latest info to a small LCD screen.
Weather Underground provides an RSS feed that is constantly updated with the current conditions. The board has custom firmware that knows the address of the wunderground RSS feed, and can connect to it and update periodically. The board is connected to the Internet via a standard router/hub/switch on a local home network.
This is truly an original idea, and i can see many other ideas based on this project, you could display any feed you’d like with slight adaptations to the source code.
