    Smart umbrella alerts you when it's going to rain
    A new smart umbrella has hit kickstarter. Its goal? To tell you when it's going to rain. It uses simple connectivity to communicate with a weather service, and the umbrella will have audible and visual notifications when rain is expected so you're reminded to grab it. The umbrella also seems to be quite high-end in terms of material.

    But... I'm only going to carry an umbrella with me when I'm going out and I know it's likely to rain anyway...

    If I'm carrying it, I'll put it up when it rains.
    If I'm inside with it and I'm not going out I don't care if it's raining or not.


    So whats the point of a smart umbrella???

    It would be a hell of a lot smarter if it warned you of lighting or high winds.
