Perfect hardware device for the Cool It! challenge:

This challenge is about bringing together hardware builders, coders, engineers, social scientists, teachers, and community members. Create a sensor kit to measure temperature and relative humidity in several locations in real time. Or, create a real-time micronet of sensor kits and use their data to understand local environmental conditions. This data could even be used to educate the community about the urban heat island effect, weather, and climate.

One Sensordrone will be given away to challenge participants in Reno, NV.
