Is it possible to have the shell output variable repeat itself every minute or so to stay up-to-date? Like an auto-refresh? Thanks!

Don't think so, no. Tasker is always in option in such a case though

Never done something like it myself but in my head something like the following task should work:
1. Run Shell action from Script categorie to run the shell command and store it's output into a Tasker variable
1.a(optional) Do some sanitizing of the results if necessary
2. Push content of Tasker variable to Zooper via the Zooper plugin
3. Wait action from Task category with the wanted pause time
4. Goto action also from the Task category to go back to action 1.

Since this Task would run for infinity, you might want to think about some start/stop tasks you can manually trigger to control the execution of it.

Like I said, this is just from the top of my hat. You'd probably have to do some more modifications until it becomes usable
