The Ask the Cock coatrack might first look like a charming low-tech front door organizer, but it actually has a hidden talent. Modeled on the familiar farmhouse weathervane, the object can genuinely tell you what the meteorological conditions are like outside, even more accurately than your own eyes can.

The rooster component that caps Rui Pereira's hatrack has been treated with cobalt chloride, and thus changes color with the changing humidity. A blue-tinted chicken signifies fair weather with possible clear skies; meanwhile, a pink-hued bird warns you that rainfall may be experienced later.

Made from metal rods, the Ask the Cock coatrack provides you with four hooks for hanging your assortment of outerwear, and it cleverly helps you decide which items you should wear.
