Air Umbrella - Using Air To Keep You Dry

Now this is unconventional! An umbrella without a canopy! The Air Umbrella, designed by Je Sung Park consists of just a stick that blows a sheet of steady air forming an air canopy that doesn’t let raindrops get all over you.

It uses wind power to form an air canopy. The air-curtain, whose air comes into the intake, goes out into the outlet, and behaves like an umbrella that is able to block the rain. The length and size of the air-curtain can be adjusted and not only does its ingenious design give convenience to users, but also saves the environment from the use of plastic bags.

No more poking each other's eyes out as we hurry along the street in the rain!

Cool idea, but I'd need to see it in action to believe it works well in a driving rain...

I don't understand what powers it. Where does the wind power come in, apart from blowing away the rain?

mike said...

Very cool, but probably not too practical in downpours or for falling pianos (like in the old cartoons).

Is this from the guy who designed disposable laptops?

I can't understand how an air umbrella would work in heavy rain.

What is it powered by? It must have a battery or something.
