ambient umbrella lights up to indicate rainy weather

ambient umbrella lights up to indicate rainy weather




if winter in your city means lots and lots of rain, then the ‘ambient umbrella‘ is the perfect way to never be caught without cover. the clever device has a small light on the handle that is connected to a wireless receiver, when the weather shows rain, the umbrella will glow to let you know. the umbrella gets the weather automatically and doesn’t require any set-up or installation. the light has a series of functions showing you if it is going to rain, drizzle, snow or thunderstorm. the umbrella design itself has a wind proof design so it won’t be blown inside out and a solid grip. using an ambient display, the umbrella is a subtle yet sophisticated way to stay informed.
