At a Glance is a 21st century audible object. Designed for our user, Lucy, who goes to university in Glasgow but lives 31miles away in Dunblane. Due to the distance between the two locations she often checks the Glasgow weather in the morning to ensure she is wearing appropriate clothing.
At a Glance eliminates this task by advising her what to wear based on weather data scraped from the web using Processing. Through the use of Arduino, electro conductive thread and capacitive sensing, her touch is sensed when she opens the curtains in the morning, activating the text to speech advice.
