Called the Drumbrella (or Rain Drum Umbrella), this nifty invention basically “uses five wax cloth ‘shades’ that each have a different elasticity to produce unique drum sounds as the raindrops bounce off of them.” No word yet on pricing or availability. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Of course the stiff frame needed to keep the drum skins taut doesn’t look like it folds down that easy, or at all, and the irregular shape of the umbrella as a whole could actually make it kind of tricky to stay dry.
