Usually, the umbrella is round, so the central of the umbrella and the central of people are not coincided, thus people
will get wet easily. Also, When two people use one umbrella, it`s easy for them to get wet because the umbrella is tilt.
This special umbrella`s edge is extended for 100mm to 200mm on one side without changing the basic structure of
the umbrella, which contributes to protect people from getting wet without changing people`s habit of using umbrella.
Seeing from the top view, the half of the umbrella is round, another half of it is elliptic.
