Stormy weather and you are in your All Star Converse shoes afraid of getting your feet wet? No more, if you install weather forecast to your feet.

San Francisco-based creative studio Chapter, in collaboration with Converse, have hacked a pair of Chuck Taylors to bring the forecast to your feet.

Converse Beacon is a DIY hack that uses an Arduino board, Bluetooth, and a NeoPixel ring to alert you to custom weather conditions through IFTTT. Know when it's going to rain or snow, when the temperature outside is perfect, or when the surf is firing with custom alerts that add style to your Chucks.

You'll find all the instructions here.
