Patio umbrella with integral fan

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.???
