Its not like many people go around complaining about how hard it is to jam a beach umbrella in the sand. But then again, it’s not because something is already easy that it couldn’t be easier. That’s the entire point of technology, isn’t it? In any case, the DrillBeach is an electric beach umbrella that features a corkscrew at the bottom; press a button and it easily digs itself into the sand with barely any effort on your part. Since it’s electric, this means it uses a battery, which you can then use to charge your electronic devices through its integrated USB port.
It’s not a life changing product, to be sure. But if you’re already in the market for a beach umbrella, you might consider dropping the €30, or roughly $32 they’re asking in their Kickstarter. It’s far from being funded, so we’re not sure you’ll ever get a product, but if it does fund, shipping is expected in September.
