Sun umbrella with a built in fan

 

'cool umbrella'

Sometimes the simplest of gadgets are the most fascinating ones, and this is such a good example. This red umbrella might look like an ordinary umbrella but it’s more than that- it’s the Fanbrella Fanbrella is an Umbrella with a Fan Underneath. Underneath that UV-reflecting canopy is a motorized battery operated fan. Now you may be thinking, why would i need to cool off if it’s raining, but some people actually use umbrellas against strong sunlight.

The three blade fan gives you a refreshing downdraft on those hot days. The fan blades collapse along the shaft when the umbrella is closed so it’s no larger than a standard umbrella. It’s an umbrella that’s great for both hot and rainy days (or hot rainy days!) Buy it at Hammacher ($79)

Rain beat umbrella, “Drumbrella”

This umbrella is not an ordinary umbrella, its a musical umbrella. The concept is to take that feeling you get when you hear the watrer drops hitting the umbrella and make it better. Too bad that the keyword here is concept, and will probably remain a concept.
Each segment of the musical umbrella is covered with a taut waxed cloth; the different tension levels and sizes of each mean that a distinct sound is produced by every part of the umbrella. According to designer Dong Min Park, the segments all correspond to a specific part of a standard drum kit. The umbrella doesn’t look like it would do much to actually protect its owner from getting rained on, but it would definitely be a conversation starter. If the shades all resonate with harmonious tones the umbrella could be a truly lovely little accessory for rainy days. On the other hand, it could turn out to be the most annoying umbrella ever invented. We’ll all just have to wait and see since the Drumbrella isn’t yet in production.
