Using an umbrella to control iPod!

Would you like to control your iPod using an umbrella? According to Engadget, someone had just invented iBrella - an umbrella which does just that. The video shows iBrella in action. Here is a summary of its functions along with the actions required to achieve it:

  • Open/close the umbrella - Play/pause the current track
  • Rotate the handle – Tweak the volume or change songs (depending on the mode)
  • Stabbing the umbrella skyward – Changes mode

It is obvious from the video that anyone using this umbrella would make oneself look like a joker. Personally, I feel that it is better suited for entertaining a crowd! Nevertheless, it do is a refreshing change to see such innovative ideas every once in a while.
