I didn’t know what direction to go with this so I thought I’d open with both options…
1) Tired of being cursed because you constantly open your umbrella inside? or 2) Getting annoyed with your umbrella acting frail and nearly blowing away in high winds? If you are, you should check out this awesome concept from Je Sung Park called the Air Umbrella.
The concept takes air from an intake on the bottom of the pole and pushes out to the top creating a wind effect that blows rain away from you in a canopy fashion, a la, the umbrella.
Fascinating to say the least. Mind boggling to say more.
