Should You Ride Your Bike or Take the Train? Consult This Barometer

barometer

Richard J. Pope has one simple question at the beginning of his day: should he take his bike or the Tube to work? This gadget is a barometer that checks the weather--but also a lot more:

The bicycle barometer takes data about the weather, the status of the tube lines I use to get to work, and whether my local station is open or shut.

It then reduces all that data down to a single value and displays it on a dial with a bike sign at one end and a tube sign at the other.

For example, if it is raining a bit the dial will move a bit towards the tube sign, but if the tube is suffering delays, it will move a bit back in the other direction.

Different data points get different weightings. E.g. snow is more important than a bit of drizzle; the tube station being shut trumps everything.
