No more reaching for your phone to check the weather before you step out; a New York designer has made the easiest and quickest way to keep you dry on your commute to and from work. The project, cleverly named Raincheck and designed by Nick Jonas, is a wooden umbrella stand that lays eight LED light bulbs across its vertical front face. The lights serve its function for the next eight hours, with different signals to symbolize the weather; a steady blue bulb indicates a clear day, a pulsing blue indicates rain, a pulsing white indicates snow, and a pulsing red ultimately warns you of something serious and to just stay indoors. Currently the project is still in development phase, so check out the official Kickstarter page to back Raincheck and its goal of $25,000 USD.
