You Can Never Have Too Many Cupholders, Especially On Your Umbrella

morella-umbrella-cupholder

Morella is a cupholder for your umbrella. Before you laugh… ok, no, after you’re done laughing, you’ll want to notice that it’s not such a ridiculous idea after all. First off, the killer feature of Morella is that your liquids remain upright thanks to a special hinge, no matter what you do with the umbrella that the device is attached to. This means you can more or less walk around normally while carrying your drink and umbrella in one hand, while still having the other one free to take calls or do whatever. Sure, it looks silly, but if you think of the number of times when you’d actually enjoy having this (rainy music festivals, walking to work with a hot coffee in the morning, etc.), it actually looks to be worth the $16 pledge on their Kickstarter campaign.

Brolly Umbrella Frees Up A Thumb So You Can Text In The Rain

That’s the kind of society we’re becoming: one that creates products specifically so you can immerse yourself into your smartphone more efficiently. Avoiding any further social commentary, we’ll just say that the Brolly Rain Umbrella (as opposed to what kind of umbrella? Sun we suppose, but… really?) is just a regular umbrella that happens to have a handle with finger holes. This means you can hold it without using your opposable thumb, thus freeing it to join your free hand and double your texting speed in the rain. There are claims of it being “ergonomic”, but we’re not buying it; this design isn’t about providing optimum comfort or relieving stress. It’s about being able to text in the rain.

It’s $20.
