Voice-brella / Umbrella handle

Voice-brella
Voice-brella

This is an innovative handle in combination of an umbrella and a squeaky ball. By pressing the squeaky ball at the bottom, you can remind the passers-by around you where you are in an interesting way while walking in the rain. When walking in the rain, you would often fail to hear others when they call you or say “excuse me.” Sometimes, because the umbrella is too big, we are too far away from each other to get in touch with them.
