Have you ever heard of an umbrella that lets you charge mobile phones?
Meet the Vodafone Booster Brolly, a smart umbrella that can be used as an emergency cellphone charger and antenna.

The handle contains a USB port that can be used to charge your cellphones in about three hours. It also has a built-in Vodafone transmitter, that can be used to amplify a cellphone signal, within a meter radius.
