'Bus-o-meter'... Installation complete. Raspberry Pi driving a set of LEDs indicating how much time until my next local bus arrives. This feeds of the TFL bus API, and runs continuously.

LEDs indicates the following:
1) data is live
2) bus delay detected
3) bus due in less than 15 min
4) bus due in less than 10 min
5) bus due in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 min
6) bus due now (go now! or wait for the next one)

In other news... I was about to start preheating my home as we left the airport (using the Nest android app), but it seems that Google Now has beaten me to it. I love how everything can be interconnected these days.

Introducing 'bus-o-meter'. This nifty gadget will light up a series of LEDs as time gets closer to the predicted arrival of my local bus. When the orange LEDs start flashing it's time to leave, but when the red one flashes it's time to rush or risk having to wait for the next one. Works like a charm.

Knocked up in about an hour, using a Raspberry Pi, breakout board, a few resistors, and some LEDs. Code was written in MS visual studio (c#), and run on Unix using mono. Live bus data is pulled from the TFL API every 15 seconds.
