Ambient Umbrella lets you know when it'll be needed

While you might think that there's not much more you can do to an umbrella to make it better, this umbrella looks pretty brilliant. I mean, it has a module in the handle that wirelessly connects to Accuweather.com, getting the latest forecast. If it's going to rain, it'll flash a light at you. The faster the light flashes, the higher the chance for rain.

Never again will you be caught in the pouring rain because you forgot to check the forecast before leaving the house in the morning. Just one glance at the umbrella by the door will let you know whether or not you should bring it with you. What'll they think of next?!
