Pileus – The Internet Umbrella

Created by Sho Hashimoto and Takashi Matsumoto, Pileus is a working prototype of an umbrella that connects to the internet and uses the cover as a projection screen. It contains a camera in the handle and instantly uploads photographs to Flickr. The user can scroll their online photo album with a flick of the wrist.

It also acts as a mapping device. The umbrella can also connect to Google Maps and display an image that updates with the user’s location.
