At some point or other, you've probably cursed a meteorologist for providing an inaccurate forecast—now, the X-Wave Weather Challenge from Toyota provides payback.

In order to show off the powers of the Toyota AYGO, the challenge stars three forcasters who are asked to make accurate predictions about the weather. To make things interesting, the car was rigged with a special forecast-activated Canvas Roof so that when they predict rain, the sunroof would remain closed, and when sunny, the sunroof automatically opens. Since the high-tech sunroof is rigged to do what the forecast says, the car does exactly what they say, even if the prediction is off. The end of the challenge is comically marked with a weather forecaster predicting rain or shine, saving himself from getting snowed or rained on through the sunroof.
