Hands Free Umbrella

'Nubrella' Will Not Invert

— February 21, 2008 — Fashion
Now this is what I need, an umbrella that can be used completely hands free, even in significant winds - so I can yap on my phone and hold my snacks. The nubrella promises that and more; “it can not and will not invert in any wind”. How does it do it? Nubrella utilizes a new patent pending “shoulder straps” and “offset handle” so it can be used completely hands free. With an oval, streamlined and aerodynamic design, it stops rain, wind, snow and extreme cold- and keeps your head, face and shoulders dry. The makers tout it as the first true hands free umbrella in the world.

Check out our Cheif Trend Hunter Jeremy's Top 8 Innovative Umbrellas:

Trend Themes
1. Hands-free Umbrella - The Nubrella offers a hands-free solution for using an umbrella in any weather conditions, presenting opportunities for convenience and multitasking.
2. Patented Design - The patent-pending shoulder straps and offset handle of the Nubrella provide a unique and innovative design for a truly hands-free umbrella experience, offering possibilities for future umbrella enhancements.
3. Streamlined and Aerodynamic - The oval, streamlined, and aerodynamic design of the Nubrella not only keeps users dry in rainy, windy, snowy, and cold conditions but also presents potential for creating more efficient and stylish umbrellas.
Industry Implications
1. Outdoor Gear - The hands-free umbrella trend presents opportunities for outdoor gear manufacturers to create innovative and convenient products for outdoor enthusiasts.
2. Mobile Accessories - The Nubrella's hands-free feature opens up possibilities for mobile accessory companies to design and market accessories optimized for using smartphones and other devices while staying protected from the elements.
3. Fashion and Design - The sleek and functional design of the Nubrella offers potential for collaboration between fashion and design industries to create stylish and practical umbrellas that combine fashion-forward aesthetics with hands-free functionality.
