FunBrella Brings You Virtual Rain Anytime, Anywhere

Imagine for a second that you love rain SO much that you goes nuts when the sky is blue… What do you do if you haven’t heard the sound of rain splatting on your umbrella for a long time? Go and chat with the folks at Osaka University and they’ll give you the FunBrella…

The FunBrella turns any umbrella into a virtual rainmaker. Like anyone carrying an umbrella under the heaviest of rain, you’ll feel water dropping on your umbrella and even hear it, anytime, anywhere…

And Osaka University went a step further. This umbrella can transmit to any other Funbrella what you’re going through… Suppose you’re in Japan and your girlfriend lives in the US… and you want to share the sound of the big hail falling on your umbrella… In this case, she’ll only have to open her FunBrella (even if the sun is shining), to hear the same hail falling on her head…

I don’t know what they smoke over there in Osaka… but WOW, it sounds terrific!
