If you have an extra hand free to hold up an umbrella (and if not, there is always Nubrella), you might as well make it the coolest damn umbrella possible. The Wi-Fi Umbrella has a built-in camera which snaps shots of you as you stroll around town on a rainy day. The umbrella even allows you to upload the photos to Flickr using Wi-Fi support.
And possibly the coolest feature of all, with a snap of your wrist you can view the stored content of the umbrella, projected on the device itself. While there is no price yet listed, the umbrella should be available to UK rain dancers pretty soon. — Andrew Dobrow
