This WoodStation item is a motion sensing block of laminated walnut effect dead tree which conceals a fancy digital weather station and alarm clock thing. We’re not going to comment on your taste in home furnishings if you buy one. Honest. £89.95.
The WoodStation’s large coloured icons show sunny, partly cloudy, rainy, snowy and stormy conditions, so even a meteorological dunderhead can suss out what shoes to wear. If Beeb style weather symbols are too tame, Ian McCaskill wannabes can check out barometric pressure, indoor relative temperature and indoor relative hygrometry data, enabling them to predict the weather up to 24 hours in advance. With features that flashy it goes without saying that the WoodStation also boasts hour, calendar, alarm and snooze functions.
