Ambient's forecasting umbrella now on sale


For those of you who have been getting continually soaked in bad weather due to your unbelievable lack of knowledge concerning the possibility of rain, your day of suffering has come to a close. The Ambient Umbrella, which we introduced you to way back in the good-old-days of 2006 -- and then checked out intimately earlier this year -- is now available for purchase via the company's website. The device, if you'll recall, alerts you to upcoming rain via the colored LED ring located on the handle, which is updated wirelessly via Ambient's "Information Network", thus resulting in a generally drier commute. The magical umbrella is available now for $125, and your ability to check the weather before you leave the house is also available now, for free.
