CNC 03 Displacement map

I wasn’t expecting to be that easy and precise.
The tool used is a 2-flute Straight.

It is possible to draw the paths with any 2D vector application.

CH-AW 0.4

QRCode sneaked in.
Was easier than expected.
Based on ZXing implementation.

Now focus on the status bar temperature. I forgot how underutilized/underestimated/badly supported are those space up there and the whole android notification ecosystem.

Notifications should be a huge part of an OS workflow and user experience but nobody seem to really realize how powerful they could be.

Time to re-utilize some of the tricks I used with this notification volume control.

CH-AW Ambient Weather developing progress

Good news everybody, the Ambient Weather’s API return the station’s data even if the owner decide to not share them.

Sadly they don’t retun the station’s geoposition coordinates there…

Adding the widget and the temperature (or what else? Humidity?) in the notification bar and I’ll push version 0.9 to the store. Let see if I can make it before March.

Ambient Weather API

Writing a simple Android Wear and Android App that pull data from the Ambient weather API.

I think the API is maintained by a single hero:
https://github.com/owise1 while the main company that actually sell the station seem almost unaware of its marketing potential.
Would be nice to have a station’s QRcode ready to be shared with people that don’t have an Ambient weather account instead of forcing the owner to dig into the ambientweather.net account’s profile (that is different from the ambientweather.com account… sigh).
That would make configuring my app super simple and I can see local business owner’s sharing their station as a promotional bonus (scan the QRCcode and you get local real time weather data).
