The weather-station design has been licensed to Texas Weather Instruments, which offers an assembled version of the station. Expand the weather station with additional sensors to measure barometric pressure, humidity, lightning strikes, soil moisture, and rainfall. Dallas Semiconductor, Dallas, TX. www.iButton.com.
