So you've got your place all decorated but still think it's lacking a bit of a mad scientist vibe? Well, South Korea's Karak Electronics has got a solution for you in the form of the AWS-2000p weather station. Just hook this sucker up to your PC and you'll be able to monitor the weather outside in realtime, without having to look out your window. Out of the box the system will measure the amount of rainfall, direction of the wind, and wind velocity, although with a few modifications it looks like you could use it to harness lightening and power your house, or perhaps turn into a death ray of some sort. Availability and pricing information are a bit hard to come by, but we're guessing that they go something like: "not here" and "more than we can afford."
