An-IDEA-a-DAY: The Tiltable Umbie

Drawing my bad experiences of using the umbrella during the monsoon rain season, the tiltable umbrella design above takes into account the shifting wind directions in a typical rainy situation, to allow for maximum protection of the user against getting wet.

The off-centred design allows the user, especially those who are tall, to still be able to keep themselves relatively dryer, compared to current designs. The proposed wind/moisture sensor at the tip of the umbrella allows the user to have greater control and knowledge on the shifting wind directions, especially when on the move. It allows for a pre-emptive change of the cover to happen, to offer better protection.
