Internet of Things : Use the new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, a Sense HAT, and the Initial State cloud platform to create a networked weather station that can be accessed anywhere in the world.
How’s the weather at your mountain cabin? What was the barometric pressure in your tool shed last month at 3:52am? Using the new Raspberry Pi 3 with built-in WiFi, a Sense HAT, and the Initial State cloud platform, this information can be displayed on your smartphone or computer with just a few button clicks.

Find out more about the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
Not only is the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B the fastest Raspberry Pi to date, it’s the first one with built-in WiFi (802.11B/G/N) and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity allowing you to get connected right out of the box.
Find out more about Initial State
Development boards like the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, and Arduino make it easy to connect sensors to the internet. But how do you access and make sense of all that data? With Initial State, you can easily turn sensor and event data into real-time dashboards, waveforms, charts, and even emojis.
Find out more about the Sense HAT (AstroPi)
The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT attaches via the Pi’s 40pin GPIO port to read and display sensor data from a host of built-in sensors. Based on the same hardware that is currently in orbit on the International Space Station, the Sense HAT lets you create applications, experiments, and games
