Clock Parasol Umbrella Tells Time

Here's a really neat concept, using your umbrella to tell time. Using sun dials as an inspiration, a Japanese designer created this Clock Parasol umbrella. The umbrella uses vertical lines to indicate hours and horizontal lines to indicate solstices and equinoxes. Also, the handle comes equipt with a compass so it is easy to find magnetic north. So how do you tell time? Just position the hood of the umbrella in the same position of the earth and look up!  The umbrella will not tell you the exact time, but an approximate time. So when your watch is broken or your phone is dead or unreachable, your umbrella will be your next best friend! Especially in Raincouver!
