In this instructable, I tell you how to make split-flap display and show the current weather conditions on it. Also how to fetch the weather information from the Web using Wi-Fi and API.
I am a fan of the XOD visual programming environment. With the 0.22.0 version, XOD entered the Internet of things. So I have an excellent opportunity to create a device in the style of IOT and program it using XOD.
The idea is to display data about the current weather and temperature in my city. To display the information I decided to make a retro split-flap display in the spirit of the old railway station display boards.
The display can show up to four characters.
This instruction can be divided into several stages:
Preparation.Creation the mechanics for the display.Electronics configuration.Interaction with the weather API app.Programming the device.”
