The Air Umbrella was a kickstarter idea that reached its pledged goal of $10,000 (it actually reached 10 times that amount, probably because its so friggin’ cool) and will soon be hitting the market.
The Air Umbrella uses air, instead of a canopy, to propel rain away from the user. Why is using air better? I can give you two reasons: 1, you eliminate the possibility of poking yourself or somebody else in the eye with your umbrella. And 2, because its freaking awesome, just look at it..
