Under-brella / Public facilities design


Due to the unpredictable weather, people have more opportunities to get soaked or drap at some place waiting for umbrella.
To solve this annoying situation, the under-brella has been designed. It's the machine that people can rent the umbrella as
long as they like with the special magnetic card. There are a certain number of the umbrella been stored inside this
machine. The umbrella inside the machine also can be dried, in order to make the next tenant use happily. The under-brella will
be placed in somewhere in the crowd for conveniently returning.
