The Ambient Umbrella shows when rain or snow is in the forecast by illuminating its handle. Light patterns intuitively indicate rain, drizzle, snow, or thunderstorms. Local weather is automatically downloaded from the internet.

From nifty idea to fully fledged product, although we are unsure if this product comes from the same creators as the weather forcasting umbrella we featured two years ago. Thanks Selby.

Could a barometer fit into that handle? :P

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
