U-Umbrella / Umbrella

U-Umbrella

If we close the umbrella the other way around, as demonstrated below, then the water dripping off can be collected and won't be so annoying.

There is a storage bottle on one end of the umbrella, which can collect the water dripping off from the surface of the umbrella, and can be disposed later at user's convenience.

This prevents water from dripping off so that we don't have to bring umbrella bags with us, and helps users in many ways including keeping public transportations' floor dry, so that the risk of slipping is eliminated.
