brellabox

Climate information home accessory

Overview

BrellaBox is a device that provides easy access information that most people in Seattle need to know before leaving the house: the temperature and the chance of rain. The device is Arduino-powered and is housed in a wooden laser-cut enclosure.

Step by Step Development

This project consisted of ideation and prototyping. See the timeline of how we made BrellaBox using sketching, digital mockups, woodshop, and Arduino below.

How it Works

1

Powered with Arduino, with a quick glance at BrellaBox, the need to pull out one’s phone or check a computer for this data is unnecessary.

2

BrellaBox can detect your indoor and outdoor temperature with a switch of a button.

3

Get real time updates about rain conditions so you can always be prepared when you go outside.
