Phone-Brella: A Hands-Free Umbrella (Video)

There’s practically no limit to the ways a stiff rainstorm can cut into your productivity, but one underrated one would have to be that you can’t answer texts, check voice mail messages, or any of the other stuff you can’t do with your phone while you’re holding an umbrella. But … NO MORE, thanks to the Phone-brella by KT Design.

The Phone-brella allows users to text to their hearts’ content while shielded from the rain thanks to a simple C-shaped handle that can fit snugly on the forearm instead of taking up one or both hands. It will probably take a few minutes to get the hang of it, but once you do you’ll have one less thing to worry about if it rains.

KT Design’s Phone-brella isn’t available on a mass scale as of yet, but you can get a feel for how it works by checking out the promotional video below. For more information, head over to URdesign right here.
