Umbrellas are absurdities!
An umbrella is a bad shelter against the rain.
- An umbrella is totally unsuitable for the combination of wind and rain.
And guess what, most of the time rains comes with wind.
- It takes a hand to hold an umbrella.
It is quite an effort to aim an umbrella against the wind.
- Sooner or later the wind is stronger than the ribs.
As soon as one rib breaks down, the umbrella degrades to a rag beyond repair.
- Create an
egg-shell, of tiled triangles.
- Create a backpack with a bar, rising to the top of the egg-shell.
- Create a nifty mechanism so the egg-shelter can shift
rotate in all directions.
When the wind blows the egg-shellter
When the rain stops the egg-shelter is easy to pack.
The triangular segments shift nicely on top of each other, forming a stacked pack of bent triangles.
- Will find the position with the lowest resistance.
- Tilting against the wind.
- Providing optimal protection against the rain.
The egg-shelter is a world-class invention, if I may say so myself.
- protects against wind and rain,
- keeps both hands free,
- does not have weak folding ribs.
