To be more fair, the Smart Umbrella should really be named the Genius Umbrella.
Setting their sights on umbrellas when they’re not in use (which – let’s be honest – is most of the time) minna, the design studio of designer duo Satoshi Hasegawa and Mayuko Tsunoda, have worked wonders on an age-old design. By essentially making 2 small modifications, the typical umbrella has become infinitely more user-friendly. They added anti-slip rubber to the end of the handle and flattened the outer edge. That’s it. The result is self-explanatory (and genius).
Unfortunately, this is a prototype from last year that was never commercialized.
