If you’re not content with the weather predictions provided by your PC, cell phone, or local weather provider, you can go for the gusto and get the TV Weather Station.

The monster unit uses your TV and four AA batteries to create its own weather network, analyzing 11 weather conditions in your own backyard.

In your backyard? Yes—the unit can only transfer info up to 200 feet. What do you want for $130? Your own satellite?

It may not be as cheap as say, well… looking out your back window, but it is about half the price of similar units, which also usually need a PC. It also provides data that most of you can’t see just by peeping, such as wind chill factor, wind direction and speed, barometric trend, and more.

The receiver will also calculate a forecast based on weather trends over the past 72 hours, says OhGizmo! Could be kind of a neat gift for the weather nut in your life…
