Weather Smart

Have you ever gone to work on a nice, sunny day, only to be stranded outside later when it starts to rain? How wonderful would it be if you could be prepared for quick weather changes in advance.  

Well, last year in Principles of Engineering a team of students came up with the perfect solution-- Weather Smart. 

Weather Smart is a multifunctional desk that forecasts and displays the weather and, importantly, hands out the appropriate item according to the weather forecast. The desk is about 120 cm high so that items are easy to reach. There is a 7 inch display on the desk that shows the current time, precipitation, average temperature, and minimum and maximum temperature.
