Umbrella That Plays Music Will Have You Singing

Jan 9 2007 - 12:46am

When I was little I probably watched "Singing in the Rain," starring Gene Kelly about five times with my grandma. Something about Kelly's moves, the rain and the "glorious feelings" the characters exuded left a longstanding impression on me...so you can imagine my surprise when boy-focused tech blog Engadget found this concept umbrella that plays music [1], and seemed to not understand the joy that would be singing in the rain with a musical umbrella.

The music umbrella was created by Sdesignunit [2], after its designers pondered the special feeling that listening to music on a rainy day evokes in people. The dome structure of umbrellas allows sound to be more concentrated, and the handle of an umbrella could be a great part for controlling the music.
