    Weird... Nobody chose that their teachers help in projects ideas... That's maybe everyone has begun his successful (I hope) career, or maybe where I come from, teachers r more 'helpful', if ya know warra mean :wink: ...

    How about an wierles wether station that display data as an graph on an graphical LCD


    On one end you have temperature,humindity,air preshure... sends it over an RF link and on the other side it displays it an an graphical LCD.And an serial conecton on a PC on wich the data can be transferd.

    The only problem is storing the data on the device 8 512Kbit I2C EEPROMs wod provide loging for 28h is it logs in 3 8bit mesurments evry 10 minutes.
    Meaby using an SD memory card and 64MB (wod work for 2 weaks wen loging 3 8bit mesuments evry minute)

    I thogt you wod use an graphic LCD.Jea an pong game is out on an char LCD (these are only good for displaying text)


    You cod make an wierles temometer that has an PIC whith an temperature sensor and an RF module on the other side you have an LCD that displayis only the curent outside and curent inside temperature (the reciver itself has too has an temperature sensor for the inside temp.)

    Shodnt be hard 2 18-pin PICs,2 I2C temperature sensors,1 RF TX/RX pair,1 small char LCD.

    You can order samples for microchip (you can get the PIC and the I2C temperature sensors this way)

    There's already a pong game you can download, rather impressively it works on a TV screen - generating the picture entirely in software!.
