This article attracted me not because of the title, but because of the short description that was on the page that linked to it.

“Smart headlight ‘turns rain off'”.

It’s a common theme in sci fi and fantasy – control of the weather.  I wonder what level of technology is necessary before we can actually control, let alone predict, the weather.

I’ve seen similar things elsewhere – Kari Fay’s story about the weather forecast, and the storytime series about the water mage (not precisely the same, but sort of relevant since it’s control of the elements).

Stay tuned for this Friday’s post, which will involve weather.
