Combine your umbrella with a light? While the idea might sound a little strange, the conceptual design for the Day Shade Night Light Umbrella is actually really cool.
The umbrella, according to GearLog would be powered by flexible LEDs and absorb light during daytime use, then provides lighting with an external switch which can be dimmed at will during night time hours.
It’s just a concept, so not much to say about it right now, but the design was cool enough to show off.
What do you think? Would you be willing to take your outdoor umbrella indoors for use? Or perhaps you could just sit outside and read right from your favorite patio chair.
