1 second / Product design

In Taiwan the weather is moist and it rains very much. While entering a building after using umbrellas from outside, they are wet and need to be coated with a plastic bag to prevent making the floor wet. The traditional umbrella covers are nothing but a plastic bag, people spend a lot of time coating it and also make themselves wet. "1 Second" is a new umbrella coating device for public space. People just insert their wet umbrella into "1 second" and pull out from top. The umbrella will be coated and the next plastic bag will automatically loaded for the next user. The whole product works without electricity and can be folded while sunny days
