Smart Umbrella Tells the Weather

Ever missed the weather report and got caught in a torrential downpour? With this handy gadget you’ll never have to worry about the rain again. The Ambient Umbrella is an intelligent accessory from Ambient Devices. A series of flashes in the handle indicates whether it’s preparing to rain or snow and whether it will be a light drizzle or a heavy thunderstorm.

The umbrella receives local updates from Accuweather.com. Not sure how the umbrella itself will hold up in rough weather. The website says that it was constructed with a “top-quality “gust-buster” umbrella canopy design.” If you’re interested in owning a smart umbrella, you can pick one up for 9.
