SunSeeker / Daily necessities

SunSeeker
SunSeeker

Position and angle of the sun is changing all the time. In order to get better shade, people tend to change the umbrella’s angle to match the sun's location, so that they will not be sunburned. This is very inconvenient. Sunseeker is an umbrella that can automatically track the sun. There is a solar direction sensor on the top of the umbrellas. It will automatically track the sun's position. It can adjust umbrella surface at any time on the basis of sun position, and make the surface perpendicular to the direction of the sun. So you don’t have to judge where the sun is. Sunseeker is a good assistant to protect you from the sun.
