What do you get when you combine an Arduino shield and a love for the video game Minecraft? How about an awesome electronics build that will tell you how the weather is topside in your blocky world while you toil away in the depths of your elaborate labyrinth of mineshafts. Its not often that a few of my hobbies overlap, unless its photography, as that tends to work its way into most everything I do, but this is pure genius.
Over on the website www.radikaldesig.com (its in Spanish, and thanks to Google translate) they have the files for recreating your own, or you can eventually pick up one up once they get past the pre-alpha phase at minestation.me
Here is a nice video of it in action:
