iBrella Interactive iPod Remote

The iBrella is a conceptual design that turns a simple iPod remote into a giant rain-deflecting remote that is fully interactive. The iPod is controlled by motion of the umbrella. For example, opening up the umbrella will begin playing and spinning the umbrella left or right can skip tracks forward or backwards. It is kind of an interesting design, but I'll just continue with sticking my hand in my pocket and controlling the iPod that way—no need to reinvent the wheel.

If they can get the tempo of the music to be controlled by the rain drops hitting the top of the umbrella, then I think they are on to something.
