Ambient offers an umbrella that can tell you when you need to take it along. The umbrella’s handle contains Ambient’s wireless data-radio that constantly receives information from AccuWeather.com. When precipitation is headed your way, the handle will glow and blink with various patterns to let you know if you’ll be getting rain, drizzle, snow, or thunderstorms. The umbrella canopy is the patented “gust-buster” design to withstand winds without turning inside-out. Check here to see if you are in one of the 150 cities covered by AccuWeather.com. The Ambient Umbrella is available from Ambient for $129.99.
