Illumbrella / Product design


This umbrella collects rain water to generate electricity to make the umbrella glow
in the dark to increase the visibility of the user.
Under normal temperature, water needs to be added only once every month or so to
ensure continuous power generation. Removing all water, the umbrella can be stored
away for 5 to 10 years without losing its functionality.
