MyWeatherStation is an activity for the user to track the weather in their area as a way to learn about the components of weather. Eventually, sensors will be implemented to track the temperature and humidity in the area on a more accurate level.

Project Status

This activity is currently in an early Alpha phase. It is under development for the RIT Fall Semester 2013.


Pre-Release 1.0 (Hearty Laugh)



The major goals for this product in the current phase of development are as such.

  1. Have an interface for the user to select from a gallery of images depicting weather conditions, in order to plot the one that best suits their environment.
  2. Have that information couple with a temperature and humidity sensor, to create an accurate weather profile.
  3. Have that Weather profile publish to the Journal, as well as to a calendar interface that the user can use to go back through the weather from earlier days.

Within these goals are a number of individual tasks, that will be solved over the course of development for the project.

To Do List

  • Get buttons to work so that the images can be clicked and will track weather
  • Make calendar screen
  • Publishing to journal
  • Sensor functionality (Getting the sensors, and then making them work)
  • Building a menu selection screen
  • Having stable development and deployment environment


  • There is an activity that runs on the XO, it doesn't do much, but it is there
