Alex Woolley Designs an Umbrella that Encourages Playing in the Rain

Most people have seen umbrellas that are designed in the shape of different types of weapons, and Alex Woolley continues that design style, but with a twist.

It's normally the handle of the umbrella that's designed in the form of a rifle or even a samurai sword; Alex Woolley has done the same thing with a handgun, but in a functional fashion. Don't worry, this little revolver doesn't actually fire bullets; instead, it's a water gun. The top is actually funneled so that it catches rain and forces it into the squirt gun. The way I see it, carrying this umbrella around during a thunderstorm will give you a never-ending supply of ammo.

Unfortunately, Alex Woolley's umbrella is only a concept. Hopefully it will come into fruition, because I'd buy this in a second.
