Air-Umbrella / Umbrella


It is necessary for us to take an umbrella whenever it rains.
But the umbrella gives uncomfortableness in our daily lives.
Especially we feel it is not convenient to go somewhere with the rainy umbrella.

1.Portable : The Air-umbrella surpasses the exisiting umbrella in design.
As We control the length of it, we can take it easily everywhere.
2. Convenient : The original are not convenient because of not removing the water drops at once after using them. On the other hand, the Air-umbrella is more useful to move around or take it since it doesn't have any moisture.
