Rain Shield, A Clever Redesign of the Umbrella

Rain Shield umbrella redesign

Rain Shield is an intriguing redesign of the umbrella that provides additional side coverage to protect against windblown rain or splashes (video). The canopy is supported by a single curved steel wire and a telescoping rod—there are no flimsy metal ribs or dangerous pointy tips. The Rain Shield design concept is by Lin Min-Wei and Liu Li-Hsiang.
