Description

This skill shows the current weather and a five day forecast, in metric or imperial, on the HoloPlayer One. Different visual effects represent each form of weather, time of day, etc.

The HoloPlayer One HoloWeather app can be downloaded for Mac here: http://static-files.lookingglassfactory.com.s3.amazonaws.com/HoloWeather/HoloWeather-Mac.zip
Go here for Windows: http://static-files.lookingglassfactory.com.s3.amazonaws.com/HoloWeather/HoloWeather-Win.zip

If you need help setting up you HoloPlayer One, please follow the tutorial here: https://blog.lookingglassfactory.com/getting-started-b3a72335567d

When you open the app, you will be prompted to enter an app ID. This ID will be provided by your Alexa when you open the skill. Enter the number into your app, press enter, and tell your Alexa you are done. If you ever need to change your app ID, or submitted it incorrectly, press the “~” (tilde) key on your keyboard to reopen the UI to enter the number.

With your app synced up with your Alexa, you can ask to see the weather in cities around the world. You can also switch between metric and imperial units, and ask to see the forecast for the city you are currently observing.

To issue a command to the app and then have Alexa stop listening, you can ask to open the skill with a command utterance. So, for example, “Alexa, open HoloWeather for London” or “Alexa, open HoloWeather and switch to forecast” will have the Alexa shut down immediately after fulfilling the requested command. If you just ask Alexa to open the skill by saying “Alexa, open HoloWeather” she will continue listening until you tell her to stop.
