A poetic visualization of the time to come


Little Umbrella prototype #1

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.
