Ambient Umbrella

Interesting concept. The Ambient Devices Ambient Umbrella gets weather data from AccuWeather.com. The Ambient Umbrella waits in the umbrella stand unnoticed until rain is expected, then gives a gentle visual reminder that it will be needed.

The concept behind Ambient Devices products is that some digital information should be “glanceable,” that is, the information is not worth either constant checking or having to shut off an alarm, so it vanishes into the background. Other products from Ambient Devices include Ambient ScoreCast devices that provide real-time stats and scores and the AMBIENT DEVICES Stock Orb which monitors the Dow and indicates in real-time whether the stock market is up for down.
