Those oh-so-busy commuters charging up and down High Holborn would definitely appreciate this concept design now that the rains are back. Trying to juggle a mobile phone, a briefcase, and an umbrella while steaming ahead can’t be easy.
The Bluetooth Umbrella eliminates one of the three by allowing your phone to live in your pocket while you talk to the handle. It even doubles as a radio so you never have to listen to the rhythm of the falling rain (sorry, something about rain brings out the 80s in me). Which leaves only one problem. How nutty you’ll look talking to yourself with nary a handsfree in sight.
