Together-Shared Umbrella / public design

Together-Shared Umbrella
Together-Shared Umbrella

Together is a shared umbrella design, which can be placed in public place, such as bus station, subway station and so on. We design it to help pedestrians without umbrellas and to alleviate the problem of insufficient shared umbrellas in rainny days. The top of the umbrella has a projection device. People can type in a source and destination place when rental umbrellas, then the information will appear on the umbrella from the projection. If there is a person who has no umbrella, he can watch the information to look for a person who goes to the same destination and share the umbrella with him.
