Color LCD Weather Station Doubles as Digital Photo Frame

by Paul Strauss

From weather websites to the morning news to your mobile phone – there are hundreds, if not thousands of different ways to find out your local weather. But there’s something about this tabletop weather station that would have me checking it first.

Color Weather Station

I think it’s the bright full-color 7-inch diagonal TFT LCD screen that’s got me hooked. I’m so used to seeing crummy monochrome displays on weather devices. The screen can display indoor and outdoor temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, phase of the moon, times of sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset, among other things. To provide accurate weather info, a wireless sensor sits outside your house and transmits a wide variety of climactic information back to the basestation.

Color Weather Station Digital Photo Frame

Speaking of other things – when you’re done checking the weather, flip over to photo frame mode, and you’ll be able to display images from Compact Flash, SD, MMC, Memory Stickā„¢, and xD memory cards — or if you don’t have one lying around, there’s a wee bit of internal memory (128 MB), which can hold direct transfers from your computer.

And thanks to a built-in atomic synchronized alarm clock, you just might want to put this on your bedside table in place of your crappy old clock radio. The digital weather station / photo frame is available now from Hammacher Schlemmer for $199.95.

    Ahem. It’s actually climatic data.

  2. The most technical point of this photo frame is the built-in atomic synchronized clock, giving us the precise clock. In addition, the sensor is very smart, it can receive the exact data through 2 layers of walls.

    I have one and I love it. I have it sitting on my desk and depending on what mood I’m in I change the picture. Although it doesn’t show anything lower than -20 C on a graph it still shows on the main screen the correct temp. The sensor can go pretty far. I had it 20 feet away from the base and still working.
