SHAREUmbrella / SHAREUmbrella


It is hard for the autistic to communicate with strangers. They need a topic to contact with others. By putting a sign of “taxi” on the umbrella, “SHARE” tells the stranger without umbrella that “I can share my umbrella with you”. If they are heading to the same place, they can use the umbrella together.
Not only for the autistic, but the ordinary people, it can reasonably use the extra room under the umbrella and start a good opening for the two strangers. The umbrella can make you more popular among people and start an interesting way in your social network.
