A group of scientists have developed an air umbrella.

As its name suggests, the umbrella doesn’t rely on the usual materials to keep you dry.

But instead, it creates a force of air, which is so strong it deflects the rain away from the area above you.

With New Zealand experiencing a rather poor spring, with lots of rain, I think this new device could become popular.

  1. I think it is an interesting experiment. But what happens if it is a windy and rain day ? Will the wind blow the air umbrella down?

  2. They don’t show you the compressor that is attached to the bottom. Would not be fun to drag one of those(very heavy)

  3. WOW INTERSESTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
