Light Drops For The Rainy Days Diva

  • Pin it

After the glowing purse, now here comes another one of those glitzy wonderful inventions ready to bright up your days! Especially your rainy ones!

The LightDrops Umbrella by Sang-Kyun Park is an ordinary looking umbrella with a special add-on: it carries an intelligent membrane conducting the energy from the falling rain to the embedded LEDs, lighting up instantly (and changing intensity – heavier the rain gets, brighter the LEDs shine!). I don’t know if standing under the umbrella light it’ll turn you into a star, but at least it’ll help you find the way in the rain! Would you buy one of those if they went into mass production?

OMG yes! I love this idea, and would feel so much safer walking around with a lit-up brelly!

Yes, I like it. Its rather nifty and if it came in different colours yes I would like one as I do like brollys!

This umbrella looks great! But in contrary to Sal I wouldn’t feel safer….I would be scared they see me coming from far! It depends on where you live I guess. Nevertheless I like to own one since I live in a country where it often rains and I “collect” umbrellas!
