Rain Shield – Umbrella Redesign by Lin Min-Wei & Liu Li-Hsiang » Yanko Design
Dude might do a kickstarter for this concept umbrella. Interesting, but the folding mechanism, while necessary to keep it popped out when open, is somewhat unattractive because you are bound to get wet trying to fold the thing as shown. Also, needs to use some sort of clear plastic vinyl or have a clear plastic window, otherwise you can't see forward.

Laser-assisted water condensation could be used to create rainfall | Mail Online
Interesting use of lasers to cause pseudo-natural nitric acid droplet formation in the atmosphere as a cloud seed trigger. I wonder what the frequencies are to do this...

I like the bit about being able to set up a distributed network storaage array where the underlying storage servers/providers are untrusted. A kind of hostproof hosting RAIN storage setup.

Somebody had the thought of layering thin film solar PV onto those wind ribbon piezoelectric generator strips, which happen to also make electricity if being impacted by rain drops too.

Laser creates clouds over Germany - tech - 02 May 2010 - New Scientist
If I was a naughty third world country, I would use this to try to force the formation of clouds and rain on the edges of a country's borders, to prevent rain from reaching a neighboring country. Essentially try to horde water within my airspace.
