This project was completed in the spring of 2014 for NMD 295. The entire project was completed using Processing. On the left, the user can enter his or her (or any valid) zip code and the weather on the screen and the thermometer will change to match the weather and temperature at that location at the current time. To get the up to date weather information I am parsing Yahoo Weather each time a new zip code is entered.
There is a 60 second day/night cycle where the moon and sun both rise and set and the clock reflects the time in the simulation. If the user hits the ‘L’ key ladybugs will appear on the grass. When the ladybugs are clicked they disappear.
