The worlds smallest automatic umbrella is extremely compact in design when folded up and when needed, it opens up to a 40 inch diameter to protect you from the rain.
Opening it takes just the push of a button. Likewise, to collapse it down to its compact size (8 inches) for storing, it also takes just the push of a button.
The canopy is made of 00-denier polyester and the rest of it is made of stainless steel to make it stronger when coping with breezes which would tend to collapse an umbrella.
When closed down, it measures 8 inches long and has a 2 inch diameter.
The umbrella is available from Hammacher and will start shipping tomorrow.
