Inside the thermometer scarf is an Adafruit Flora Arduino board, an Adafruit NeoPixel RGB LED strip, plus humidity and temperature sensor modules that actually read the weather conditions. The scarf is more fun than practical since it can’t actually tell you when you might need to wear it, but once you’re outside it can certainly validate your choice to bundle up warm.
