Pileus "Flickr" umbrella

Designed by the Okude laboratory at Keio University, Tokyo, the Pileus is a concept umbrella that can transmit photos and video directly to Flickr and YouTube respectively. Images are captured by a digital camera, and sent to the websites via a WiFi transmitter in the handle. The umbrella also has a built-in projector, allowing users to visually browse their accounts by twisting the handle left or right. There is currently no indication that the Pileus will become a commercial product -- it has become increasingly miniaturized however, having gone from a wired, man-length design to the size and shape of an ordinary umbrella.
