A lot of countries have very erratic weather, sometimes it sunny and bright when it suddenly starts to pour and you’re left looking helter-skelter for shelter. And then there are days when you decide to listen to your organised and prepared-side and decide to carry an unbrella in case history repeats itself, but it doesnt rain. Its a pain to be stuck to the umbrella at retaurants, malls and banks when its not raining. Such situations can now be in complete control with the help of Raincheck, an elegant umbrella stand that doubles as a rain forecaster. With the help of this awesome device you will always know what to do; different coloured lights will notify you of the current situation and you can act accordingly.
Each dot represents a different time, with the top light being “now,” while the bottom light projects the forecast eight hours later. The colors change from blue (clear skies), to white (its snowing) to red (stay inside) and will blink to show its pouring. I like the way the makers think, why should a phone tell you if you’ll be needing an umbrella, a umbrella stand should be doing it right? You can get a Raincheck on Kickstarter.
