Turn Your Umbrella Into A LED Light Show

by AndrewD

Gene Kelly makes dancing in the rain look much more charming and stylish than it actually is. It’d be interesting to see the after effects of the famous “Singin’ In The Rain” scene, where Mr. Kelly is sitting soaking wet, moping and grumpy in his home. Of course they don’t show that part.

Surprisingly, there are still people who are trying to look cool while being caught in the middle of a downpour. I tend to envy anyone who has an umbrella in a storm, just because I always forget to bring my own. This really cool DIY LED Umbrella gives me yet another reason to sulk around those who have umbrellas (and they’re always so smug about their dryness!)

Adding strategically placed LED bulbs around your umbrella creates an excellent light effect when you move the rain guard in swiping motions. The light adds a whimsical touch to an otherwise entirely ordinary object. The edition of the lit bulbs is most definitly a welcome glow of light for those dark and stormy nights, walking the streets alone.

The umbrella looks pretty easy to make yourself, and the result is a really cool light effect illusion which is sure to make even the dry among us jealous beyond comprehension.

It’s Gene Kelly guys, not Fred Astaire, that is seen dancing in the rain . . . . .

Astaire? Really? You don’t know or you don’t remember? Gene Kelly. Fail.

Try Gene Kelly, not Fred Astaire to give your credibility more OOMPH!
