Water Wiper / Outdoor Furniture

Water Wiper
Water Wiper

Have you ever experienced this: after the rain stopped, you took a walk in your own backyard / in the park, you wanted to seat down. But you found all the benches are wet! The only way you can dry the bench is to wipe it with a cloth or some tissue paper or otherwise, your hands.
“Water Wiper” is an outdoor bench with a device on its surface. When we move the device across the bench, the rubber blade inside the device (like the ones used in windscreen wipers) will push the water from its surface, keeping the bench surface dry and ready to be seated. The little change enables the outdoor benches to be used even if it just rained.
