This is a fun project that plays with how to visualize information using only light and sound. What better way to have some fun with this than to make an Internet connected cloud that connects to an open source weather API?

This CircuitPython based project will walk you through connecting to lights, sound, and a network cloud service. Next we add some code to make it all go, along with a few sound files. There is plenty of room for your artistic side as we turn our electronics into a super fluffy cloud. Hang it up and watch it go.

This cloud is set to display the following weather updates common to the OpenWeather API

  • Clear
  • Clouds, Fog, Mist
  • Drizzle, Rain
  • Thunderstorm
  • Snow
