    What's so interesting about it (apart from some techie sensors)?
    It does not not seem to be able to be read by Cumulus and it does not seem to be anywhere near a kind of standardized meteo station.
    Apart from that you share your data and have to pay for it.
    Or do I miss something about the interesting part? Oh yes, and it is still under development and are looking for investment.

    Maybe interesting from some points of view but not sure which pov.

    Has anyone got ever got a haptic rain sensor to work with any sort of accuracy?

    Aha, I'm beginning to understand: Google is behind it :!: ;)

    You might want to go on to their forums and read up more about it before making such profound statements.

    I wasn't aware that new weather stations should be able to be read by weather software? In any case, there's an API just like Ecowitt's version, if people want to use a PI device to capture the data.
    It is designed for those who want a simple plug and play station so that they can get all of their weather data anywhere in the world without having to set up software, and it's proved to be popular.

    I had the original one and it was pretty good but I also had some issues. The haptic rain sensor got better over time but it wasn't perfect. The temp/humidity sensor was very accurate, which is not surprising, as it uses the exact same one in the newer Davis Pro2 stations. NOAA were also involved and deployed many stations across the US to get information from several hurricanes.

    The TLDR is yes, you are missing something about the interesting part.
