The weather can be a big influence in one’s life. While it is easy to get the weather forecast from 24-hour TV, the Internet, or SMS nowadays, it is still handy to have a user-friendly weather forecast device in your home. The new Oregon Magnetic Weather Hub is a weather station–cum-fridge magnet which can show the current temperature reading and a 12 or 24-hour weather forecast through graphics or icons.

This device does not offer sophisticated functions but is attractive due to its simplicity and practicality. The information is easily accessible to everyone in the family from young children to the elderly. Measuring 3.5 x 6.5 x 0.5 inches, the device can also be set to display temperature in Fahrenheit or Celcius, according to users’ preference. Shaped like binoculars, the device can be used at home, in schools, in offices, or in public places. At $1.49, the Oregon Magnetic Weather Hub is a steal.
