Girotir / umbrella spin-dryer


'Girotir' is a compound of spanish words, 'goiro' and 'batir'. Without the use of electricity, 'Girotir' is an eco-friendly umbrella dehydrator. It uses the human physical power rakes through the umbrella and removes the water.
The existing system was irrelevant for those with mini umbrellas. All common umbrellas has a handle, all you have to do is to put the upper part of the umbrella in the hole. folding the umbrella and inserting it directly in 'Girotir' the tumbler will rotate. The squeeze in the inside will make the water drop or scrape it.
