November 22, 2007 Oregon Scientific has added its range of weather monitoring smart clocks with a Projection Clock that constantly reacts to forecasted weather from 12-24 hours in advance, changing its display color to red, light blue, blue, orange or green depending on the anticipated conditions.
The BAR339P indicates a range of outdoor conditions including sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy and snowing using a remote sensor with a range of up to 100 feet (30m). A dual line projection arm shows the time, alarm status and outdoor temperature in blue and can be tilted and rotated 180 degrees to suit different viewing angles. Automatic sensors detect the light intensity in the room to switch the projection function on or off at when a preset level is detected and "light-touch key technology" allows the operation of key functions through by simply touching the surface of the 4.78 × 4.57 × 2.29 inch device.
Available for around USD$65, the BAR339P Projection Clock with Color Weather Forecast is now on-shelves in Australia - see Oregon Scientific for details.
Other recent additions to the range include the "Easy Weather Station Pro" - a weather forecasting clock that also measures and predicts humidity and barometric pressure and indicates the phase of the moon phase - and the "Wireless Weather Station with World Time" - a world clock featuring instant access to the time in 130 cities (with Daylight Savings automatically adjusted) along with temperature and humidity, a barometric pressure trend indicator with historical bar chart display and the ability to accommodate up to five remote sensors with a range of up to 70m.
