#1321: Rainvelopes

Today’s invention is a transparent plastic umbrella with double-thickness panels. Each of these acts as an envelope into which can be slotted, from the perimeter with the eye-snagging pointy bits, a flexible, triangular insert; visible both from inside and outside.

These inserts can be pre-coloured, to allow the user to coordinate their outfit with their brolly, branded exclusively or contain hand-drawn images to provide an extra dimension of rainy-day personality.


  1. Might be nice to have a small projector in the handle and a translucent screen formed from the segments…so a user could run a movie for others to watch (including ads, naturally πŸ˜‰

  2. I like it.
