Here is another umbrella design that would effectively prevent the watery mess created by an umbrella indoors. The POPI Umbrella comes with a quick and easy storage option in the form of the handle, which also doubles as sealable housing. You can release or close the umbrella by popping the cap. When closed and contained, the hermetic seal prevents water from leaking, thereby allowing you to simply throw the umbrella in your bag and move on without worrying about getting your bag wet.

A magical concept, the Air Umbrella consists of a pole that blows air from the bottom via holes to the top to create a loop after acceleration. This in turn creates an air curtain right above the user’s head, thus pushing away water droplets magically and keeping you dry underneath an invisible umbrella made of nothing but air.
