App of the week
Ever found yourself stuck in the middle of torrential rain without an umbrella? Well, real-time social sharing weather app Wezzoo’s oombrella is helping people avoid that unfortunate situation. The app will notify you if you’re about to leave it behind and a downpour is imminent. Hyper-local weather data recognition and tracking enables the tool to send a message like ‘take me with you! It will rain in 15 minutes’ to ensure you have the heads up. This is achieved by sensors integrated into the handle, capable of gauging metrics such as pressure, humidity, light and temperature. The oombrella is available for preorder on Kickstarter in white, black and a couple of other shiny finishes. It will also fit into a tiny handbag. Go smart and never get stuck in the rain without an umbrella again.
