The drury days of black umbrella herds groaning in the rain, scurrying to comfort have changed. –The UMBRELLA has changed.

The simple invention was morphed by Japanese techs into the Pileus WiFi Camera Umbrella. The wireless internet connection enables taking pictures and uploading them to one’s own Flickr account, resulting in a rain-framed display of Flickr photo streams in any weather.

The gadget will be available soon through Sharp Edge, guaranteeing the customer to never sigh in bad weather again.
