RainCloud Umbrella Minder v2


Do you always forget your umbrella whenever it rains? No more!  Jeremy Blum shows you how to easily make a RainCloud Umbrella Minder:

The RainCloud is a web-connected smart umbrella holder. Built around the LittleBits Cloud Bit, the RainCloud allows you to tell with a glance if you need to bring your umbrella with you for the day! A 3D-printed stand holds the umbrella, and features a subtle EL-wire pattern that illuminates if rain is imminent. If you’re very forgetful, the RainCloud will even ping your phone to inform you that you’ve left your umbrella behind if you leave home without it on a potentially rainy day.
