Rain Shield Shelters You from the Rain and Protects from Splashes

by Hazel Chua

Regular umbrellas shield you from the rain falling from the sky, but they don’t do anything to protect you from water splashing from the wheels of cars speeding through puddles in front of you.

It’s annoying but unfortunately, there is little you can do about it. Until now, that is, thanks to Lin Min-Wei and Liu Li-Hsiang’s Rain Shield.

Rain ShieldIt’s basically an umbrella with an extension on one side that shields you from splashes coming at you from the side.

When you’re safe and dry indoors, just fold the entire umbrella up into a 180-millimetre-diameter disc and store. Pretty convenient, huh?

The Rain Shield was presented at the red dot award: design concept ceremony in Singapore.
