It's time for another episode of The Fellowship of the Things, the video series where we set our Creative Technologists loose in SparkFun's IoT apartment. For weeks we thought Sarah was out on vacation, but it turns out she was hard at work, buried in pillow stuffing and paper lanterns at her desk. She emerged with one of our favorite projects yet - the Cloud Clouds - and she and Shawn installed it into the apartment with great fanfare. Instead of pushing data to the web, as with past projects, we decided it would be interesting to pull weather data from the web, and use it to affect the appearance of our clouds.
If you're anything like the rest of us, you'll have to go back and watch the video again because you missed large chunks of the instructions while shouting, "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY." Thankfully Shawn and Sarah anticipated this, and they made a wishlist and a GitHub repo so we can all make our own Cloud Clouds. We hope you enjoy our latest IoT project, and we'll have another episode before you know it!
