Watch us build REMS - the remote environmental monitoring station, in just over 11 hours over two days.

The REMS is designed to be a cheap wireless weather station, measuring light levels, barometric pressure, rainfall, temperature, wind speed and wind direction.

It was built on the open source Arudino platform, using an Arduino Uno, a WiFly shield, a GSM shield and an ethernet shield.

It then sends data back to a web server, which stores the data into a database with a timestamp, which then feeds into a front-end panel with AJAX updating graphs, using JPGraph in PHP.

And no, you can't have enough laptops on one table.
