Cat Stroll UV-safe Umbrella Keeps You 13 Degrees Cooler Under It

Cat Stroll UV-safe umbrella

Very high temperatures and humidity during summers can make walking around in the concrete city of Tokyo very uncomfortable and dangerous. In light of the issue, Izavell has created the Cat Stroll UV Parasol – a trendy ultra-violet rays protecting umbrella. The smart umbrella is imprinted with cat and kitten paws which change color from white to pink with a change in the intensity of the sun’s rays.

Measuring 39.4-inches wide, the Cat Stroll UV Parasol is made of a specially coated fabric which not only indicates about the harsh rays, but also makes the umbrella durable enough to be used in rain. Capable of blocking 100 percent of ultra violet rays, the foldable umbrella is also tested to keep you 13 degrees cooler under it than the temperature outside of it.

Readily available for purchase from Izavell website for 3,780 yen (approx. $38), the Cat Stroll UV Umbrella comes with a carrying pouch.

Homemade 1989 Batmobile auction at Mercedes Benz World

Batmobiles are one of the most liked DIY vehicles and it is no surprise that many geeks venture out on making their own. In the past too we have seen many intuitive Batman fans making their own versions of a high end Batmobile, with some so impressive that it was hard to believe that they were made in backyards or home garage. One Batmobile that caught our eye just because of the amount of work put into its making and the attention to detail in its look, is the one pictured above. It also petrified us, considering that it will be auctioned by Historics for an estimated £90,000 at the Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands.
