Cloud Umbrella by Joonsoo Kim

Created by Dutch designer Joonsoo Kim, the Cloud Umbrella is carried around in stick form, and then inflated into mini-cumulus clouds of protection when the rain starts to pour. The umbrella is pumped using its pump-handle.

I think there might be some problems with the concept.I would expect the rain to collect in the channels and roll underneath the umbrella—soaking the user in the process. Perhaps a mountain umbrella with cloud cover would prove more practical.
