    The inventive folks at Pileus LLC in Tokyo, Japan have created an umbrella that allows users to take pictures with a digital camera and upload them to photo-sharing websites via a wireless connection. The umbrella also has a GPS and a digital compass, which uses Google Earth so you won't get lost.

    that thing owns if I lived in Japan and was rich, or just was rich I would get one!

    Umbrelas protect you from the sun so I could see myself sitting on a beach or traveling across dunes with one lol. they do use umbrelas alot more in Japan than in the western hemisphere.

    Chewy's right. I'm willing to bet this would actually sell in Japan.

    Japan comes up with funky shit, most of which isn't practical but "just to do it."
