Tell A Friend!

This project began with the notion that if technology is going to become more pervasive and be incorporated into everyday objects, then the results should be smart, simple and seamless. A model for appropriate embedded technology, the Forecast umbrella provides information about the likelihood of rain so that users can make a simple, informed decision about whether to take their umbrella with them as they leave for home.

Using existing wi-fi technology to wirelessly pull information from the internet, Forecast’s lighted umbrella handle glows more intensely with the increased chance of precipitation offering a clear and unobtrusive signal to the user.
