Now, hands-free umbrella to protect cyclists from April showers

London, Wed, 11 Apr 2012 ANI

London, April 11 (ANI): A Florida inventor has designed a hands-free umbrella that can withstand winds of up to 50mph to help cyclists battling through April showers.

The Nubrella, which resembles a bubble wrapped around the user's head and shoulders, works by strapping on a shoulder support and extending a canopy around the head.

Weighing just over 1kg, it costs 40 pounds and comes in either black or see-through style.

"The major advantage is the wearer doesn't have to carry anything when not in use as it goes behind the head like a hood," the Telegraph quoted inventor Alan Kaufman as saying.

"The umbrella was long overdue for some innovation, now people can ride their bikes and work outdoors completely hands free while staying protected.

"Millions of people are required to work outdoors no matter what the conditions are and simply can't hold an umbrella and perform their tasks.

"We believe this will revolutionise the industry and are targeting people who can't use an umbrella or are too tired to hold an umbrella," he added. (ANI)
