That's to protect you from running afoul of the weather!
Welcome back Mick. You had an impersonator called Anonymous for a while there. Heather will be happy to see that you're alive.A.
now, what is that thing?
My God, my grandfather had one of those. It sat on the kitchen table next to his favorite chair. Kickin'.
The Weathercube is a small tabletop radio (sold by RadioShack in the 80's) that can tune in frequencies within the Public Service Band.Wherever you live in the U.S. you're within range of a transmitter that broadcasts weather information 24 hours a day. The Weathercube was designed to be a simple radio that picks up and plays that information. You simply depress the single off-white button on its upper edge, and you hear the forecast.What's cool about it (besides the minimal, retro aesthetic) is that in highly populated areas, you can pick up a lot of other broadcasts. Most notably in New York: car services, bike messengers, EMTs, and cops.A.
