Crowdsourcing Mornings: Weather Point 2.0


Geek Alabama Crowdsourcing Mornings

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Since we are all aware of weather changes that are affecting our lives and daily activities, as team they decided to create Weather Point in order to follow up with such changes and have most accurate weather measurements on very current locations.  As they like to call it ” your individual and personal weather station”, Weather Point 2.0 is actually an innovation in weather monitoring and measuring.  Dimensionally pretty small and convenient to carry around in your daily activities, it is functionally more than helpful due to the facts that works as thermometer, humidity meter, UV index & atmospheric pressure meter and it is compatible with your mobile devices . Supports iOS & Android .

In any moment, on any location, provides you with temperature, pressure, UV and humidity measurements.  Cute and elegant, stylish, fashionable, convenient and very necessary piece of your daily outfit to help you go throughout your day without rainy or any other weather surprises.  Simply plug it in, read it and you are all set to go!  Weather Point 2.0 has four sensors (for temperature, humidity, UV radiation and atmospheric pressure) built into a standard four pole audio jack.

It is placed in a durable housing made from plastic, aluminum and titanium. These four sensors sends an audio signal which than reduce the signal amplitude witch depends on the actual readings. The software is using the calculation of the matching temperature, humidity, UV radiation and atmospheric pressure, and reads these information on the screen of your device.

Just plug Weather Point 2.0 into your mobile device and start our App. The readings will appear on your device at a blink of an eye! Weather Point 2.0 doesn’t use a battery or internet connection. It is powered by your device battery and doesn’t spend a lot of energy so don’t worry about recharging.  By measuring atmospheric pressure Weather Point 2.0 App will inform you about your current altitude. Another useful info, isn’t it?!
