TAXI Umbrella / Umbrella

TAXI Umbrella
TAXI Umbrella

Umbrella is commonly used for rain preventing in daily life. But in some special aspects, it would cause several problems as followings. Firstly, the user is difficult to identify an available taxi because his sight is blocked by the edge. On the other hand, the driver of the taxi is hard to tell which one of the people is his target because they are all blocked by the umbrella. The “TAXI Umbrella” is a luminous one that could help us to get a taxi in rain. Pressing button at the end makes the beck sign flashing. This makes it easy not only for the driver to locate the target but also for the user to get a taxi.
