What we did
Umbrella Here is a Kickstarter staff pick project which is a light that can be attached on an umbrella. It is controlled by a mobile app that tells people that this umbrella is available for sharing. Just like the light you would see on a taxi. When the light is on, it represents that strangers are welcome to come in and share your umbrella.
Umbrella Here also creates a space that facilitates communication and connection between strangers, hoping to create a better connected community.
“Fabulous idea of turning the humble umbrella into a tool for meeting new people, at the same time saving them from soaking.”
