The reflective multi-coloured Oombrella transforms its users into into mobile weather stations, which can predict rain half an hour before it hits.

The Oombrella is brightly colored, and it sends notifications on your smartphones by sharing data to users who use the weather app Wezzo.


The Oombrella will send alerts to your mobile phone if it realises you accidentally leave it at home or in a restaurant, using its GPS tracker.


Oombrellas are not for sale yet but they will be available on Kickstarter this winter. The weather app Wezzoo is already used in 189 countries and in five different languages. Oombrella users will connect and share their weather data with the Wezzoo community.
