Public umbrella dryer / Sharing

Public umbrella dryer

We find it troublesome to go out on a rainy day. When we enter a public indoor place, there is nowhere to put our dripping umbrellas. You can only hold the wet umbrella in your hand or throw it on the ground, so that you will get wet on your body or the ground. This is a Shared drying umbrella stand. The user puts the wet umbrella into the umbrella stand and uses it through the electronic screen on the umbrella stand. After paying with the mobile phone, the built-in heater starts. At present, there are two kinds of umbrellas in the market, long handle and short handle. Red stands for short handle and blue stands for long handle.
