I have this bedside lamp I got at a consignment store, and I've always thought that a lamp should be able to do more than just light up the room. There's something beautiful to me of everyday objects becoming a little smarter, and displaying information without us having to look at our screens.
So I decided I wanted the lamp to tell me the current and forecast temperature. A pretty useful bit of info when you're going to bed at night or waking up in the morning. So I gutted the existing 40w incandescent fixture inside the lamp, threw a Particle Photon in the base, and wired up two-12 LED neopixel rings from adafruit!
The lamp uses the open weather map API.
