43 Cool Umbrellas To Brighten Your Rainy Days & Where To Buy Them

Most people I know hate rainy days! Personally, while I sometimes enjoy a walk in the rain, I can’t say I’m going crazy after them either!
Traffic sucks, people are stressed and angrier than on regular, sunny days and, overall, things tend to go rough on rainy days! And there’s another strange thing going on: following the same pattern as Murphy’s Law that says “Washing your car usually seems to bring rain“, umbrellas seem to vanish, they go broke or lost or they get forgotten at home every time rain is pouring outside!
So, as the rainy season just started, I went out after a cool umbrella to brighten my rainy days. Bellow are the coolest umbrellas I found around. There are a handful of other cool models I found but they were not available for purchase! My favorite is number 18, I can stick it in my backpack and forget about it … until it rains next time! What’s you favorite one?
You are not the only one who hates rain! Share this post, so your friends can also grab a cool umbrella and brighten their rainy days too!

The Scary Tram Shelter ... Is This The Coolest Augmented Reality Commercial Or What?
Amazing augmented reality commercial by Sky Austria in cooperation with the FOX series to promote the start of the fifth season of “The Walking Dead ” in Austria!
A tram stop in Vienna’s 7th district was rebuilt via Augmented Reality screens and was haunted by zombies for 2 days! Just like the Pepsi Max Augmented Reality Commercial we featured earlier, the amazing visual effects were obtained by overlapping pre-recorded zombie footage on on a live video stream of the sidewalk where the tram shelter was situated. Check it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts in the comments bellow!
