A Cleverly Designed Umbrella That Will Not Turn Inside Out During Violent Storms

The Japanese company h-concept has come up with an altered umbrella that does not turn itself inside out during violent storms and typhoons.

Called the “Unbrella”, this umbrella will not turn inside out as it has already been turned inside out. Its supporting metal skeleton is on the outside to keep its shape in place.

Users also close the umbrella by folding it inward from the top. This unusual umbrella would be available from February 2014 for approximately US$91.


Although this seems like a good idea, we are unsure if this product will function as it should during bad storms.
