[Brevity ] version (could have posted just this):
Inverted saves water deceives wind.
[Full ] version (seemed more fun to post this longer explanation as well):
Umbrellas are actually environmentally unfriendly. Not only do they intercept nature's built-in-shower systems and force
you to expensively shower with treated and chemical laden tap water; but they waste all the fresh rain water they intercept.
If the wind blows, umbrellas turn inside-out. Especially whilst in films. This is bad. A serious design flaw.
Enter the inverted umbrella. This umbrella is fairly identical to a standard umbrella which has inverted due to high winds, apart from the fact that the mechanism is reworked to support it better in this shape and allow easy folding.
Rain water is neatly collected in this cup-like shelter and runs down the center of the pipe via an inlet in the environmentally-exposed section.
At the other end of the pipe is a length of rubber hosing which attaches to a soon-to-be-ubiquitous backpack containing a large flexible water-tight bag to collect water.
Should the wind come along and attempt to peskily invert your umbrella, it will be thwarted by the fact that it is already inverted.
Once you arrive home, you can empty out the water into your water tank or water butt, neatly saving the environment.
Two problems are solved using very basic technology.
