I was inspired by this device from something I saw on Think Geek Smile
http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/electronic/7687/

I am thinking of making something similar, but not as complex. Their device uses the weather broadcast network to get their temperature data. I am thinking of going low tech and use a simple temperature sensor (run to the outside)

The device would be a simple board that emits mixed LED light upward. Then I would find something to put on top that catches the light well. Nice plastic cup comes to mind Laughing

Oh, please do Very Happy I've wanted one of those since I saw it, but I can't justify the $170 for it... I would love to throw together something similar.

That Thinkgeek thing is fantastic, but the price Confused

When you build it are you going to show others how to do it? I would like to make one on the cheap Cool
