Meet Raincheck: an elegant umbrella stand that uses lights to let you know about the weather outside. It has 8 glowing lights to show the next 8 hours of weather. When the lights are white, it means you will be dealing with snow. Steady blue lights indicate that the weather will be clear. In case of extreme weather, the lights turn red.
Raincheck connects to your WiFi network and updates its lights every 15 minutes. The companion app is available for iOS and Android devices. What do you think? Are you sold?
