Oregon Scientific weather station shinier than ever
Posted by: Maria Mihale in Gadgets
If someone came to me and told me that his/her latest acquisition consists of a weather station, I would undoubtedly raise my eyebrow, as a sign of â€œwhat in earth were you thinking of when doing such thing?â€. â€œWho am I to judge people?â€ youâ€™d probably say. And youâ€™d be right, I agree. But I canâ€™t see any reason for someone to make a decision like this.
And do you know why? Because when we need information about the weather, when weâ€™re desperate about knowing the weather forecast, we have all sorts of other solutions to help us out. For example, we can always go â€œgoogleâ€ the problem and find the answers we need online. Itâ€™s easier and much cheaper. Especially if weâ€™re talking about the Oregon Scientific weather station that comes in a very shiny outfit, all made of Swarovski Crystals.
The thing is this device isnâ€™t smarter than others, but itâ€™s encrusted with those precious little stones, which makes it more expensive than its siblings. If you asked me, I could tell you that too much glitter isnâ€™t a proof of good taste, but thatâ€™s just me, after all. Called the Diamond Weather Station, the device tells you the time, on one hand, and the indoor/outdoor temperature, whenever you wave your hand. Not to mention the fact that it also displays the forecast for the day on the side.
The Oregon Scientific weather station isnâ€™t yet available, but once it will be, itâ€™s expected to be sold for a price of $139.
