Vodafone has just created a very special type of umbrella: the Booster Brolly. Thanks to its solar collectors which recover energy and store it in a USB battery, the Brolly booster will allow you to both recharge your smartphone while protecting you from the rain.
The umbrella also has a network amplifier, which allows the person holding it to benefit from better signal quality, and a small LED, for additional lighting. Vodafone VIP customers can test the device today atIsle of Wight Festival.
A gadget that could have been extremely useful lately, given the weather.
