With the Hamptons feeling more like London than the Hamptons during the summer, an umbrella has become a permanent accessory one cannot leave their beach home without. However without having to constantly check your blackberry or iPhone for up to date weather information, you can now use the Ambient Umbrella to do all the work for you. The intelligent umbrella's handle will illuminate a blue light when the weather forecast calls for any sort of precipitation. You might be slightly baffled that an umbrella can predict the weather, however, it has this capability because it is connected to accuweather.com. At a price of $129, it is a wise investment considering this summers crazy weather.
