Remember that oldies song “Bus Stop“ by The Hollies? It basically tells the story of two strangers who meet at the bus stop, share an umbrella, and end up getting together because of their bus stop meetings.
Depending on the programming and the data used behind the apps, weather iPhone apps can be a gamble. I’ve had a couple of them installed and it was always funny to see them give out different forecasts for the next couple of days at the same time.
There are a lot of weather apps out there that can tell you if it’s going to be generally rainy or sunny today. If they say today’s going to be “cloudy with light rainshowers,” you probably wouldn’t have any idea what time of day the rain clouds will come rolling in.
NASA always has an eye on the Sun and other parts of the solar system just in case something cool happens. Turns out that NASA caught a very cool phenomenon back in September of 2011. The space agency recorded a video of that appears to be a gigantic solar tornado using the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
Clouds are those puffy white balls of cotton that hang in the air far above us. Unfortunately, only those select few who grew wings because of radiation exposure can fully enjoy them. Sure, we can all lie on our backs and pretend that these majestic pieces of nature look like everyday objects, but we all know that they all just look like masses of fluff.
If you read Technabob very much, you know how we feel about DIY gadgetry around here. If you have a cool DIY project that uses in Arduino controller, you’re probably going to catch our eye. I know Robb Godshaw has certainly caught my attention with his cool invention.
These headphones, which were designed by the Copenhagen-based firm KiBiSi, were made to be weather resistant. This means that they’ll shrug off rain and snow. That might be cool to have, especially if you can’t live without your tunes while you’re walking around this winter.
Earlier, I was singing to the tune of Corinne Bailey Rae when I was talking about the Vinyl Numbers Clock.
Now here’s another thing that got me humming to the tune of another song. This time, it’s Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and I’m sure it’s a song that you’ll be singing in your head when you’re walking under the Fanbrella.
Ever wondered what lightning strikes really looked like? Tom Warner recently captured some incredible footage in Rapid City, South Dakota. He captured over 9,000 images per second and this 1.5 minute video lasts only 2 seconds in real time!
This kind of reminds me of the Weasley clock that was in Harry Potter, but there’s actually more to it than just the time. It can actually show you what the weather is like outside.
I love how this display is retro and analog.
This awesome piece of umbrella-technology is kind of like a divining rod for rain! It knows when it’s going to rain before you do!
If you’re like me, you rarely check the weather. I’ve been caught off guard a few times, but it just darn sucks when you get totally drenched by a rain shower and there are no umbrellas in sight.
One of the most absurd things about the Star Wars universe is the fact that the planets are differentiated mostly by their singular weather conditions. If you see a snowy scene, then you’re looking at Hoth.
Those of us living in the Midwest know all too well that Winter is about to strangle us with its icy grip. And while 6 months of freezing cold weather can really suck the life out of you, there is a happy side-effect of the season.
From weather websites to the morning news to your mobile phone – there are hundreds, if not thousands of different ways to find out your local weather. But there’s something about this tabletop weather station that would have me checking it first.
Ever find the need to use your computer while standing out in the rain? Me neither. While the handful of folks who really need to could drop a few thousand bucks on a military-grade waterproof laptop, here’s a much simpler, brute-force solution for keeping your laptop safe and dry on a rainy day.
These digital alarm clocks from Oregon Scientific offer up a bold modern design that’s sure to look great on your bedside table.
