Ambient Umbrella tells you the Weather

Umbrella tells you if you need to use it

With the weather not knowing what it is doing most of the time, it is handy to have one of these ambient umbrellas. On the handle is a ring of LEDs which glow according to the weather. The umbrella picks up the weather reports via a wireless network, GSM I believe, and just a glance at the handle of the umbrella can indicate if you should think about taking it with you for the day. Its not a bad idea, although predicting the weather is still questionable… so I guess they have preventions in place to stop you taking legal action when you get soaked when it told you it would be dry.
