Nubrella – The Hands-Free Umbrella

Nubrella – The Hands-Free Umbrella


By Luke Anderson

How many of you carry an umbrella when it’s raining? Unless I know that I’ll be walking for long distances in the pouring rain, I won’t bother. I figure that I’ll spend more time standing in the rain closing the umbrella and trying to put it in the car than I’ll actually spend outside. If you have a thing about getting wet, you might want to check out the very interesting Nubrella.

The idea here s that you can have an umbrella that doesn’t require any hands, because lets face it, you don’t always have one. The other benefit is that your head is blocked from the elements on all sides. On the downside you look like you’re being eaten by a transparent Pac-Man. If you don’t mind the strange looks you’ll get, you can pick one up for $60.

  1. well, if you look at the history of umbrella, they had almost the same sarcastical comments when the very first people came out on the rain with “a strange stick in hand”

    Jonas Hanway, the founder of the Magdalen Hospital, has the credit of being the first man who ventured to dare public reproach and ridicule by carrying one habitually in London. As he died in 1786, and he is said to have carried an umbrella for thirty years, the date of its first use by him may be set down at about 1750. John Macdonald relates that in 1770, he used to be greeted with the shout, “Frenchman, Frenchman! why don’t you call a coach?” whenever he went out with his umbrella.

  2. Increased risk of hypodisplastikia & brain cancer due to higher levels of CO2 buildup present within canopy… suggested uses reserved for republicans wishing to call attention to George Bush’s bubble theory regarding the Texas Jack-o-rabbit’s free range energy project [very hush hush]… end of transmission AtomicZ…

  3. I have been looking for this for twenty years! Finally, someone who uses crutches or is in a wheelchair can have protection from the rain. We always have to rely on others to carry the umbrella . Another way to assert our independence. AtomicZ, how long would you have to be in the CO2 canopy before you develop brain cancer? Just curious.
