Australian detergent brand OMO has developed a smart peg, called Peggy, which will tell you when it's going to rain.

Australian detergent OMO has developed what it calls the world’s smartest clothes peg, which will notify you when it’s going to rain so you can dash out and grab your clothes.

The clothes peg, called peggy, features a variety of built-in weather sensors and is WiFi enabled so it can connect to your smartphone. Once it notices that the weather is going to change for the worse it will send a notification to your phone.

The app even monitors the weather using the built-in light, humidity and temperature sensors and works out how long it’ll take your washing to dry. It also contains a schedule, so you can plan washes for maximum efficiency.

Peggy is currently being tested in Australia, not exactly a place known for rain showers.
