iBrella: iPod Controlling Umbrella

The iPod is for listening to music. The Umbrella is to protect you from the rain.  At least that's the way it used to be, till someone got this wild idea to control the iPod with an umbrella.


The iBrella as it's called, emulates all iPod commands solely by physical interactions with the umbrella. Open the umbrella to play,  close it to pause and shake it wildly to select a random song. If you want to  change the volume or the track, rotate yourself or the handle of the umbrella.

What do we think? It's a great idea if you live in the Amazon rain forests or maybe Auckland, where you can carry the umbrella and the iPod together always.  Otherwise maybe we will chose the iPod controlling backpack
