If you want to see what the weather is outside, you could always open a window, but that's kind of boring. I suggest investing in a fancy gadget to do that work for you, a fancy gadget such as this Oregon Scientific Crystal Weather station.
I mean, come on! It's got laser engraved 3D icons to tell you what the weather is! Furthermore, you change it from clock to weather mode by just waving your hand over it! I'd like to see the sun do that. It's obviously a much better system than just checking outside, as you don't need to get up off your couch and walk 10 feet to the window. The future's so bright, I might have to wear shades depending on what my weather station tells me.
