    Remember that conceptual Air Umbrella I posted back in 2012? Well now somebody else has stolen/come up with the exact same idea and created a Kickstarter to make the product a reality. And they've already met their funding goal too, which means $128 will get you your very own... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual Air Umbrella from designer Je Sung Park. The idea is that it will blow a canopy of air above the holder that repels rain. Except that will never happen. Now I'm not saying somebody needs to brush up on their physics, but that little air-shield is gonna... / Continue →
