Nubrella: The umbrella of the future?
by Mark R
You know, umbrellas have probably been around for over one hundred years, and in all that time, they have not changed all that much.
As the Nubrella slogan says: “You’ve Waited Long Enough! Someone has finally changed the design”. Best of all, they added hands free. It isn’t hard to open and close the umbrella either, as you can see from the video after the jump.
Man, who hasn’t had their arm aching from a long walk home from carrying an umbrella. If you could have your hands free, then that means something, especially in the age where we are constantly talking on our mobile phones.
Granted, the design is a trifle odd. I mean, look at the people wearing this thing? It’s like an oversized space helmet, or something. Weird as it is, it can withstand 50mph winds and rip-stop waterproof nylon.
All in all, I would have to say that the Nubrella is a welcome improvement to the present day umbrella. It’s definitely the first one that I’ve seen that can be properly carried on a bicycle, and better than those goofy ones that you can wear on your head like a hat.
There is no word from my source when this will be available nor any hint of a price.
