Introduction: Episode 17: the Umbrella Light

Don't you hate walking in the rain at night?
Not being able to see where you're going, or what your umbrella might bump into?

Well fear no more with the new Umbrella Light from Stupid Inventions!

This umbrella allows you to see in the dark, keeping you safe... and dry!

Let me answer this question before I get a thousand comments about it.
This was meant as a prototype just to prove the concept.

I realize that it would be dangerous to use a power cord, ideally it would be battery powered.
They do make battery powered lights, but the stores only carry them during x-mas time, and I wasnt going to wait that long.... so please just pretend its battery powered... thanks!
