If you wished you could know what the weather is like as soon as you rolled out of bed and brushed your teeth, you may be in luck thanks to 'Tastes Like Rain.' A toothpaste dispenser, it is influenced by daily weather forecasts, which changes the taste of the paste.

Developed by MIT's Media Lab, 'Tastes Like Rain' hooks up to a computer that pulls forecasts using custom software and then spits out three flavors depending on what the weather is compared to the day before. Mint signals colder, cinnamon represents warmer and stripes predict rain.
