This Overpriced Umbrella That Tells You When It Rains Is Useless

Meet the Oombrella. This umbrella can predict if it's going to rain in its immediate vicinity using a chip inside its handle.
"We send you a notification on your smartphone and it says, 'Hey it's going to rain in 15 minutes where you are, so you better take your umbrella,'" said a spokesman for Wezzoo, the company that makes the Oombrella.
It's a neat idea, but it comes with an $85 price tag. That's pretty pricey given the fact you can get similar information from a free weather app.
