Something I made for a competition, a weather house where the man appears when it’s raining and the woman when it’s sunny. The primitive string based mechanism was replaced with modern electronics and 3D printed parts.
Containing Arduino Yún, RGB LED, Servo and DHT22. Some of the challenges I had along the way might give you ideas for products or projects.
- Cost of the Yún
- Boot time of the Yún
- Power consumption
- Security, HTTPS and authenticating certificates
- Not knowing where the servo was when it was powered up
