I’m pretty sure the Coneheads own this weather forecaster from Oregon Scientific. If they don’t, they should see if they have a baby missing.

Stripping weather girl digital weather station

Stripping weather girl digital weather station

You know those cable stations peppered around the globe where they have a stripping newswomen? Well, this is the digital weather version. A weather girl strips piece by piece to tell you the time, temperature and the humidity. Ok, she doesn’t really strip in the traditional sense. She changes her clothes depending on the weather. What a tease!(Both her and the manufacturer.)

If it’s hot enough, she’ll get down to just her bikini. No word on how she bundles up during the winter. The winter months would obviously be very un-stimulating for any guy that happens to be turned on by this digital diva.

Posted in Outdoors,Weather Stations by Nino Marchetti on July 30th, 2007

Ambient UmbrellaThough this item is somewhat of a novelty since you can just look up in the sky to see the weather, it could still help keep you dry if you plan early enough ahead. When the skies darken don’t forget to check the weather forecasting handle of your Ambient Umbrella.

The Ambient Umbrella uses a special narrowband broadcast solution to receive weather data from Accuweather.com up to 12 hours ahead. The Ambient Umbrella’s handle illuminates when precipitation is expected, to remind the user to carry the Umbrella and Ambient Devices, its maker, says its illumination behavior changes according to the forecast, for example the handle shows soft, intermittent pulses for light rain, and very rapid, intense patterns for thunderstorms.

The Ambient Umbrella is designed to run up to a year on a single C battery. It is activated via Ambient Devices and costs $125 (!). That’s definitely going …

Waterdrop Weather Station / Alarm Clock

Posted in Clocks,Weather Stations by Darrin Olson on July 27th, 2007

Waterdrop weather station from sharper imageThe Waterdrop Weather Station from Sharper Image acts as both an alarm clock to wake you with information on the time, weather and more. This probably could just as easily have been an egg or football weather station, but since it’s reporting the weather I guess it makes sense that they refer to it’s geometry as a drop of water.

When the alarm rings there’s no need to fumble around trying to find the snooze button to get yourself 5 more minutes of shut-eye. By simply waving your hand within 3 inches of Waterdrop an infrared sensor will activate the snooze for you, helping to make your late scramble to get to work a little more likely. Once the snooze is activated it illuminates the large LCD for 5 seconds giving you a chance to see the time and a graphical forecast of …
