LightBlue Bean - BLE weather station!

A project log for FacilTempo - weather station

Saving the planet from global warming requires monitoring the weather, so having a weather station is the least we all can do to help

Hi makers, hackers!

This week's hackaday giveaway is about the LightBlue Bean, a [BLE+ Arduino Uno] board; that could surely find a deeply-fitted use on my weather station!! the idea is: I flash my sketch on LightBlue's ATMEGA (just like I would do to my custom board) and instantly gain Bluetooth BLE communication; so I will be able to connect (for example) a cellphone directly to my weather station and gather environment data right in my hands!.

Of course that has a ton of potential: adding BLE to a standalone Arduino (in this case, a weather station) may bring new possibilities of application to this project, such as alarms (rain-level, sun-radiation level, temperature trigger, etc).

So I hope I get my hands on one LightBlue Bean an be able to test and validate my ideas :) .
