This is an ingenuious concept — an online-enabled coat rack that checks the internet for the day’s weather and shows it to you on an analog display, even nagging you to pick up a jacket before you head out. It’s functional, well-designed, and just a good conversation starter. Now, you could argue that a quick peek outside the front door could tell you what the weather is like — and it will — but the coat rack could warn you about the rainstorms expected later in the day. And with all the WiFi enabled devices out there now, it really shouldn’t be too hard to make sooner rather than later.
