Coming from midwest, weather has always been an issue. While it may look sunny outside on most days, it might painfully cold. Presenting our weather based Internet of Things device - Now.

"Now" goes on the wall next to/near your home's door or the coat rack. And before you head out of your home, you just tap it. It will then visually represent the weather outside:-

  • Green: For a warm day/night that begs you to head out in comfortable summer wear
  • Yellow: For a cool day/night that requires a cardigan or a jacket
  • Red: For a cold day/night requiring you to bundle up

Now unlike a lot of apps or devices that help you check weather, we do not consider the actual temperature to be important. We utilize data on what the weather feels like. Basically including windchill or humidity.

Now was designed and developed by Alex Choi, Joseph Milla and Vignesh Vishwanathan (me) at PennApps Spring 2015.
