An Invisible Umbrella That Keeps You Dry
It just hit me that my last few posts have been of the morbid variety, so it’s time to report on something a little more lighthearted.
For those looking to upgrade their umbrella, a new invention has garnered attention recently on Kickstarter that completely changes our understanding of the traditional fabric canopy. Raising $36,000 and growing, the new umbrella uses a strong air current to shield users from rainfall.
Whether the invention is more superfluous than innovative, even the staunchest critic like Gianfrancesco Genoso at Teses must admit its sheer coolness factor. Sporting what looks like a traditional handle, the invention has a lithium battery that powers a fan and a controller that allows the user to increase and decrease the canopy’s radius–convenient for those times when you have to share.
If you’re interested in learning more about this invention, or you’d like to make a financial contribution, you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
