Get the weather while shaving

Another example of the obsession with weather stations.

Hammacher

As noted too many times in this space, we can barely turn around without encountering another personal weather station , as there seems to be one created for every room in the house. But the one place we foolishly thought we'd be able to escape them--the shower--now has one of its own as well.

It may call itself the "Only Weather Station Shower Mirror" but, at this rate, we doubt that distinction will last through the end of the week. We're not exactly sure why anyone would need to monitor the barometric pressure outside while shaving, but this meteorological mirror will provide that crucial information, as well as the usual other readings from a wireless sensor that will work up to 100 feet away.

Considering the frightening number of people who want to spend their entire lives in the bathroom , perhaps this idea makes sense after all.
