Weather apps are among the most popular for a reason: unless you plan on staying inside all day, knowing the conditions outside is a must. Still, not even local forecasts can compete with the BloomSky Sky 2 Weather Camera. This intelligent weather station sits in your yard, using an HD camera to capture an image of the sky once every five minutes while it provides real-time temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure readings. You can share the resulting time-lapses with friends, upload the weather data to make the companion app’s readings more accurate, and, for the most comprehensive data, pair it with the Storm wireless accessory, which measures rainfall totals, wind speed and direction, and UV exposure. $160 on Kickstarter.
