It’s been said that with umbrellas, it’s better to have one and not need it than to need one and not have it. But weather if often unpredictable (or, at least, unpredicted by those less mindful of it), and it’s not an uncommon occurrence to be caught in the rain without an umbrella – a problem that the Davek Alert smart umbrella seeks to solve.
Basically, the Davek Alert syncs up to your smartphone, and if it senses you’re leaving the house (or wherever it is that your umbrella is currently located), it sends an alert telling you not to forget your umbrella. Problem solved!
You can get more information on the Davek Alert umbrella at the Davek online store here. There you can also order yours, provided you don’t mind plunking down $125 for the privilege. Expensive? Maybe, but given how much money the average person eats in lost umbrellas, it might be worth it.
