Smart umbrella stand tells you the weather

"Smart objects" become truly smart when they seemingly understand their purpose. A car's most important purpose is to safely transport its occupants - so, early braking detection using radar is a great way to make a car "smart".


Simone Marra has developed a smart umbrella stand that uses Open Hardware and Open Data to politely remind its owner (user? master?) of the upcoming weather and probability of rain.


The openPicus hardware connects to WorldWeatherOnline API via WIFi, and displays probability of rain with a nice RGB LED colour display: Green (Sunny); Blue (Risk of rain); Red (It's gonna rain).
