Streetlamp Doubles As An Umbrella To Keep City-Dwellers Dry
Design

Multidisciplinary designer Mikhail Belyaev from Russia has developed a concept for a streetlamp/ umbrella hybrid that could be installed in the city to provide shelter for people when it is raining. The Lampbrella has a rain and motion sensor, which helps it figure out when it needs to open and close the umbrella canopy.

Belyaev notes that it could be used in areas where lots of people walk but there are no large trees or canopies, so those who get caught in the rain have somewhere to keep dry.
