Those clever peeps at Ambient Devices have a new product – the Weather Forecast Beacon. Not only will it wirelessly connect to their free network and tell you the state of the weather outside by glowing a particular colour (red for hot and blue for brrrr), but it also appears to play the piano when tornados approach. I think! $179.00.
Funny, but there’s no mention in the blurb of how much time it saves looking out of the window, and we’re too timid to ask!
‘The Beacon silently and elegantly communicates weather data using color and light. It glows more red when warmer weather is forecasted, and colder blue hues if cooler temperatures are on the way. The Beacon will also subtly pulse to show the chance of rain or snow.’
