Radio and Weather Station

Project Name: Radio and Weather Station
Client: Fab Lab IUB
Date: 2017

Objective:  The main goal of this project was to show what could be made from a frugal budget of two to three thousand BDT and small Raspberry Pi computers. This project was demonstrated at a workshop titled "Single Board Computers", which I hosted along with some other people. We instructed 20 - 25 people hands-on at the workshop. I came up with two devices: radio Station and weather station. 

Approach: The first device was a radio station that ran using the internet rather than radio frequencies. It had buttons to change channels and could connect to national and international online radio shows. 

The second device was a weather station with weather sensors (temperature and humidity) that uploaded their readings continuously to cloud storage.
