Spinning Hat

Outer section and brim spin, keeping rain off

Tired of the rain dripping off your hat and down the back of your neck?

Spinning windows, on ships, maintain visibility even in the roughest storms.

This hat is modeled on the same principles. When activated, the brim and outer section spin at high speed, hurling any rain that falls on it off horizontally, keeping you dry even in the worst of rainstorms.

Warning: do not use in crowds, as you will simply soak passers-by instead of yourself.

       - and if a bird craps on your hat, it will spray the sticky, corrosive, white goo in a beautiful arc across the faces of those standing next to you.

       (link) Add a solar panel on it and you can use it when it's sunny. Why? Oh, just to make it sparkle. Did I mention you should add sparkly and dangly things to it?

       Can we have multicolour leds in the brim to illuminate the fleeing drops?

       Can we get it with a lip on the brim and a single hole in the lip so the water spirals outward?
