Rain Spreading Rain / Self-Create Graphic Umbrella

Rain Spreading Rain
Rain Spreading Rain

Rain drop from the sky is random and natural, and as it lands on the surface of the umbrella it turns the blank canvas into beautiful graphics. By allowing nature to “paint” on the umbrella, users can always find something fresh and interesting. The graphic will also keep changing depending on how hard it is raining, or by how much time has elapsed.
“THIC, Pressure-Humidity Indicator”, which reacts to humidity and pressure, is used on the umbrella. When the umbrella is dry, the fabric is simply blank. But when used on a rainy day, the moisture from the rain drops reacts with the special material to alter the appearance of the fabric.
