Fan + Umbrella = Fanbrella (Video)

Tokyo-based crap gadget maker Thanko has outdone itself yet again: the company has announced the so-called Fanbrella [JP] today, a combination of a fan and (you guessed it) an umbrella.

The mini fan in the umbrella is powered by three AA batteries, which is enough for about 2-3 hours, according to Thanko (you can activate the fan by pushing a button on the umbrella’s grip). The Fanbrella weighs 600g.

Thanko is already selling the thing on its Japanese website (price: $49). Ask specialized online store Geek Stuff 4 U if you’re interested but don’t live in Japan.
