USBTenki: USB Temperature, humidity and other sensors
USBTenki is an electronic project to interface sensors to an USB port for collecting weather related data such as temperature.
Author says: This project - named USBTenki, from the japanese word 'tenki', which is pronounced ten-kee and means weather - was created because a friend needed an USB temperature sensor. A short time later, I got a requset for a temperature + humidity sensor, so I added support for such a sensor. Then, just for fun, I added an absolute pressure sensor which is able to report the atmospheric pressure. I plan to add support for more types of sensors, such light, lightning detection, wind speed and wind direction.
