Sprout umbrella- true mobile tech

Having recently spent a week in Seattle I can’t believe no one has produced one of these yet.  I’m talking about the Sprout Umbrella by Yanko Design, a stick hiding a complete umbrella inside.  Push a button and the umbrella shoots out of the end of the stick to provide that protection your expensive coif requires.  When that Seattle mist stops the whole thing slides back into the stick.

Now that’s cool mobile tech.
