I had started thinking that the PiClock was looking a bit plain, so I wanted to give it a bit of a facelift.






I started by changing the weather provider, now using weather underground.  I didn't like their background map, so I used google maps for the background, with the radar overlayed.   I modified a set of weather icons to match my color theme.   I had started with a blue neon themed clock, but then after I read an article about movies being all orange and blue http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OrangeBlueContrast  I thought I'd just follow the trend and added some orange to it.    I think the new skin looks pretty cool now!






Here's a little video of the weather radar animations and the color ambilights in action.. (it was still all blue when this video was made) https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1028794177135843
