Invisible Umbrella Repels Raindrops With Air

Invisible Umbrella Repels Raindrops With Air

Concept gadget blows a steady steam of oxygen to keep users dry.

Yi Chen

Designers Je Sung Park and Woo Jung Kwon, have developed a unique umbrella that only consists of the handle and nothing else. The ‘Air Umbrella’ is a simple electronic device that takes in air from the bottom of the controller, and shoots it out at the top to create a ‘curtain’ of air that can repel raindrops.

The power of the air pushed through can be manually adjusted according to how heavy the rain is. The Air Umbrella can be retracted so it fits conveniently in your bag or pocket. You also don’t need to worry about carrying a dripping wet object around indoors.
