Project_Insight Mars connected weather display
Ready assembled Project_Insight – Project_Insight is a beautiful framed laser engraved map of Mars that’s connected live to NASA’s martian spacecraft Insight. The spacecraft on Mars records this weather data every second of every martian day and sends it back to Earth where its displayed in the unashamedly old school scrolling LED matrix display.
Includes all parts and assembly including PI, Frame, Laser cut map and digital display – you will have to follow the projects instructions to connect the PI to your wi-fi – once programmed you can leave it plugged into USB power and it will auto run and update every 24hrs
