Edge yer bets!

The Eco Edge is a wildlife and weather forecasting instrument. That’s right, for $129.99 you can now predict when it’s going to rain cats and dogs. Pardon? Oh. Sorry.

Shame, but still, probably jolly useful for when you want to go out and kill something harmless, eh?  However, the most impressive feature is the Eco Edge’s built-in…
