Taipei-based company HAZ Digital developed a high-tech umbrella that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Dubbed "the world's first fully automatic smart umbrella," this handy device does more than just keep you dry.
Unlike traditional umbrellas, the 'HAZ Umbrella' contains a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that allows it to open and close in under two seconds. Beyond its convenient opening and closing features, the high-tech umbrella also features integrated Bluetooth technology that connects directly to your smartphone device. Through the accompanying app, you will receive weather updates telling you when you need to carry your umbrella. The app will also let you know if you have left your umbrella somewhere, ensuring that you never lose your umbrella again.
In an increasingly Internet-connected era, the HAZ Umbrella provides a more convenient and reliable form of rain coverage than traditional umbrellas.
