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? (via)
