We all know that there’s one glaring problem with parasols. In order for them to give you shade, sometimes you actually have to hold them — with your hands, no less!
That’s not the case with the part-umbrella-part-drone Free Parasol developed by Asahi Power Service. In the company’s video, the prototype seems to be an off-the-shelf DJI Mavic Pro drone with an umbrella attached. But according to the Free Parasol website, it looks like the company is working on an umbrella with propellers and other drone features built in.
