Connected umbrella tells you when rain's coming

Real-time social sharing weather app Wezzoo’s oombrella wants to make forgetting your umbrella or getting trapped in the rain a thing of a past, by notifying you when you’re leaving it behind and when clouds draw near.

Touted the ‘unforgettable umbrella,’ the world’s first smart and connected umbrella blends utility with aesthetic appeal. Outfitted with hyper-local weather data recognition and tracking, the tool is able to send you a message such as ‘take me with you! It will rain in 15 minutes.' This is achieved by sensors integrated into the handle, capable of gauging metrics such as pressure, humidity, light and temperature.
