Tastes Like Rain

In the morning, there always seems like a million things that need to be done. Shower, clothes, breakfast, trying not to cry...

Checking to see what the day's weather might bring is often pushed far down the list. This can, however, lead to disaster as you either sweat profusely beneath an unnecessary jumper or you claim hypothermia from an unsuitable t-shirt.

In a laboratory that seems to be powered by magic, a new invention promises to bid goodbye to any future weather/morning misery.

Those worryingly clever chaps at MIT have created a machine called 'Tastes Like Rain', a dispenser that alters the flavour of your toothpaste, dependent on the day's weather's forecast. So mint signals a cold day, cinnamon means it'll be warm and stripes predict rain.

It's hooked up to a small computer that uses special software to pull in the latest forecast.

The prototype is in the early stages but we're feeling pretty cinnamon about it. Smirk.
