The Oombrella is a smart umbrella that doesn't merely keep you dry from the rain like regular umbrellas, but also uses technology to let you know when it's going to rain among other things. This umbrella is even capable of letting you know via you smartphone when you've forgotten to take it with you.

This umbrella's handle features a capsule that holds a number of sensors that gather information on temperature, pressure and humidity, with the resulting data used to assess the chances of rain. A notification is then sent to a companion smartphone app so that you can know if you need to take your Oombrella with you.

Not only does the Oombrella use smart technology to help you plan for and navigate wet weather, it also features a sturdy Kevlar frame that ensures that it doesn't get blown out of shape in windy conditions. Reliable as an umbrella and versatile in its role as a weather-forecasting assistant, this is one smart umbrella that is truly indispensable.
