You may remember the planetary gears from my Magic: the Gathering life trackers. I kinda took them up a notch.

This device shows current weather and temperature, a forecast, and the time of the two low tides of the day. It has a Raspberry Pi and connects to the internet to get the updated data.

I have a video of the gear rotation in action, and another of some during-development footage.

I wrote a long Medium post about it that you can read if you want more details. I’m also happy to answer questions here.
