Inspired by a busy lifestyle that can be interrupted by poor weather conditions, this texting umbrella lets you keep up with everything on your smartphone.

The 'Phone-brella' by kt Design was created to let you text while holding onto an umbrella in any climate. Rain or shine, this Korean company wants to make sure you're prepared for whatever weather and can continue to use a mobile device without worrying about getting it wet.

The texting umbrella uses an ergonomic C-shaped hand grip for comfort, so that the user can just slip it on their wrist and rest the umbrella on their shoulder. The bottom of the umbrella has a counterweight that balances the accessory, providing coverage from the rain while freeing your hands to text to your heart's content.
