Off-Grid Weather Station

Eric Walstad built this awesome off-grid weather station, using a netbook, a 135W solar cell, a desktop weather station, custom hardware, and an Adafruit adjustable breadboard power supply. He also incorporated a webcam for good measure. Here’s a timelapse movie of his cabin being built, created using custom software to combine stills from the webcam and data from the weather station. Check it out:

Very cool!
