A Flexible-Handled Umbrella Is More... Flexible!

A tweak to the traditional hooked umbrella handle just might make it a lot more versatile - so say designers Liang-Hock Poh & Ming-Hung Lin, creators of the Red Dot-winning Flexibler concept. Something like a gooseneck-lamp degree of flexibility could allow the umbrella to hang on to a backpack or post, lean safely against a wall or tabletop, and accommodate any number of hand grips. This is the point where I usually look for some flaw to balance the benefits, but... nothing! Get this thing on the market, guys!
