ePaper weather station with #RaspberryPi and #Arduino derivative

Jeremy Blum has hacked an open source BADGEr which is an e-paper conference badge into a weather station using a Pi. The BADGEr is an e-paper display mounted on a shield with an ATMEGA328 onboard. He wrote some new firmware for the BADGEr and communicates with it over serial to display weather information grabbed from internet APIs using the Pi. It really is a lovely little project 🙂

More information about the BADGEr card can be found here and complete instructions and source code for you to make your own is available on Jeremy’s blog.

You can buy a BADGEr for $50 + P&P from Seeed (thanks to Björn Söderqvist for finding this!). You could also do something similar with this cheap e-paper display from Embedded Artists.
