share-brella / Umbrella


Normally, it is of great difficulties to find a stranger who is willing to share his umbrella in a sudden rain. But "Share-brella", equipped with LED lights at the top, is able to make this easier and quicker. Umbrella holders can convey their willingness of sharing by turning on the led lights. By sharing an umbrella, people can make acquaintances with strangers who live a similar life, and provide convenience to those without umbrellas.
