NanoNuno Umbrella

by Ami Kealoha in Tech on 08 November 2006


Using nanotechnology based on the Lotus flower's nanostructures that slough off water and dirt, the NanoNuno umbrella (€50) wicks away water and dries with little more than a simple shake. Though you may have seen this little example of practical hi-tech elsewhere, for city-dwellers who think a mud room is a bar or for those of us who have a general prejudice against the annoyances of carrying an umbrella, the NanoNuno is an innovation that eases the hassles of winter weather.
