Betcha haven’t seen this LBS yet!
An umbrella that you carry while walking over a giant map of the world, and it subjects you to the weather of the part of the world you’re standing on.. kinda the opposite of what an umbrella is supposed to do. 

Lights reveal the weather (white for lightening, yellow for sun, blue for rain/snow) which comes from Yahoo Weather’s XML files.
