Self-umbrella

According to the statistics, about 82% of the people throw away their umbrella when it is just partially broken. Many umbrellas are being thrown away just because one of its ribs is broken or its button doesn’t work and this habit is wasting a lot of resources. This is inefficient and wasteful.
‘Self-Umbrella’ is developed to solve this problem by providing umbrella which can be assembled and disintegrated by the users. It modularized the whole umbrella to each segment, making it to be easily assembled and disassembled.
