Steven M. Johnson is quite the inventive thinker. In this feature he shows off six different ways umbrellas can be re-invented. The ideas feature hilarious illustrations, but are surprisingly practical.
I would have to say that the tiebrella is my favorite as it is completely convenient for a guy on a rainy day (although his shirt might get wet after he uses it). I do have to give Steven M. Johnson props for being extremely creative!
