A few weeks ago, we wrote about the new, innovative, and rather amazing weather station at the University of Georgia.
Now, in the US, it’s available for a price.
The weather station is called SkyCafe and it can see the sky, measure temperature and humidity, measure the pressure in the air, and even detect the sun’s position.
It is, as the name suggests, “free.”
The company, which calls itself SkyCafé, hopes to give people the ability to see weather in a way that they never could before.
You can order one now for $29.99 (though they are offering a free upgrade).
What’s so great about SkyCabes new technology?
First, SkyCabe does not require a subscription to use.
In fact, SkyCare is free.
The station’s user interface is very simple and intuitive.
It uses the built-in camera that comes with the SkyCaba and then connects to your home Wi-Fi network.
You simply plug your phone into your router and it starts to track your location and temperature.
You select an area of interest and the weather station picks up the temperature and the location of the sky (there’s also an option to send data to a cloud server).
There are also features that you’ll likely notice if you’ve been around weather apps for a while: it is a free service, the data is collected anonymously, and there are a few options to limit usage to only a few hours per day.
SkyCabbes pricing, though, isn’t cheap: it costs $29 to $39 per month.
That’s a bit steep, but if you live in the area, it might be worth it.
The company has raised $10 million to date, but its main focus is in the developing world, where people have less access to modern devices.
It plans to expand its service in Africa, where the weather is often unreliable and people can’t afford to buy expensive gadgets to see it.
SkyCare’s biggest advantage is that it’s not just a weather station.
It also uses artificial intelligence to track how the sky changes and to measure temperature, and it also has the ability see into the future.
SkyCar, a new weather station that also uses AI, is launching in April.
Skycare has raised an additional $30 million in a Series A funding round, but this round will help it get a bigger audience, which is important for the company.
The future looks bright for SkyCaber.
