For those days when it is too hot even in the shade. Visualize a ceiling fan up inside your patio umbrella. The Fan motor is attached below the hub (or pineapple) and would surround the pole. The blades would fold down (pull-twist-fold) so the umbrella can be closed down. Power is either AC, or Battery
(integral in the base). A Solar Cell option would also be available ,using flexible PV cells as an integral part of the umbrella cover. See http://www.solarflextechnologies.com/ for PV cells. Watch your heads - anti-scalp grille is optional.

||'Halfwhacked' or whatever it is, I've forgotten, it's taken so
long to find one.
||to make this game more halfbakery friendly, I think arora should either a. move this idea on by way of a creative anno or b. perhaps mark it for deletion ; for double points.
||I couldn't mark for deletion (I don't know how), but if the
blades were made of plastic and filled with pre-iced water
etc. and had a pouring device, as it melted you could
pour yourself a cooling drink.???
||Does anyone know where to buy such a thing as a umbrella fan.
||wonder if migraine's link works.
||sorry, wittering away to myelf here, you could put a heater up there when its cold <g>
||[po] the heater is baked (link).
||Someone has already done it. I had the same idea and googled it. Here it is.....http://www.taylorgifts.com/prodetail.asp?itemNo=17997&ID=
