Kite umbrella / Design for poor areas

Kite umbrella

This is an umbrella that can be used as a kite. The umbrella consists of three kites. When it rains, the kite can be used as an umbrella to keep out the rain. When it is not raining, the umbrella can be taken apart and the kite can be released with the partner.
In some poor areas, people lack entertainment facilities. Because of the backward economic conditions, even the basic umbrellas are not available. They only use simple items to stop the rain. For this, I designed an umbrella made of cheap and environmentally friendly materials. It can be used both for rain protection and for entertainment.
