Dyson umbrella anyone?

I’m guessing that the designer is assuming some sort of global catastrophe happening that will mean by 2050 air, or for that matter rain, is made of something different to what it currently is. 😀sharkbaitMember
So it blows the rain up, in a cone, so surely the water flows to the bottom of the cone. Meanwhile more rain is falling and false to the bottom of the cone where it’s shear wight overcomes the airflow and runs straight down your arm. – or does the handle contain a jet engine that runs on nothing?
Also, what happens when you switch it off? I presume all the water that was being held up onto use its gravity trip.

Presumably the force required to blow air with sufficient force out of the top of his ideation so that it blocks rain, won’t cause it to shoot downwards towards the floor with such velocity that it smashes to tiny weeny bits? Or am I missing something? The ideator has also obviously never been to Scotland, where all rain travels horizontally at face level.Posted 5 years agobencooperMember
“Are Umbrella Really Practical?”
The plural of umbrella is umbrellas. Sheesh.
Anyhow, meh – there was a really clever* idea I saw which used an ultrasonic transducer to shape the raindrops into airfoils which would then drift off to one side.
*clever in a totally not practical or ever going to work way.Posted 5 years ago
