Ambient Forecasting Umbrella
Finally, an umbrella that reminds you to bring it along before you need it. The Ambient Forecasting Umbrella ($100) is a 58" dual-canopy umbrella with a "gust buster" design, push-button opening, and one killer feature: a built-in wireless transmitter that gets the daily weather forecast from Accuweather.com, and if there's a chance of rain or snow, LEDs in the handle flash in relationship to the chances that you'll need it. Brilliant.
