New to the Oregon Scientific lines of products is the Helios Solar Weather Station.  To be entirely honest there’s nothing new going on here, but it does offer a semi-robust feature set at a reasonable price, especially when compared to their +ECO line.

So what are the deets?  Aside from supplementing its power using the inbuilt solar panels, the Helios can wirelessly monitor up to 3 locations around your home – that is assuming you’ve bought two additional wireless sensors (one is included) -  display the indoor/outdoor temperature, humidity, 12+ hour forecast, date/time from the Atomic clock and alert you of impending ice.

You can grab one for $55.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
