Because the weather influences our mood and our everyday behavior. Because we should not underestimate the importance of talking about the weather!

Little Umbrella is a small umbrella connected to the Internet which shows the weather for the next 6 hours. The umbrella opens or closes in a poetic visualization of the weather forecast. This smart object tells you whether or not to wear a raincoat! Illustrated explanation:

Connected to Yahoo's weather API, the little umbrella becomes a physical interface between us and the world of meteorology, opening the way to what we might call poetic design.
