Nubrella Inc. is the manufacturer of a hands-free umbrella that promises its users a dryer experience in unfavorable weather conditions. The bubble shaped umbrella allows business to continue. Tasks such as carrying groceries, cellphone usage, commuting by bicycle, etc. are made possible with Nubrella.

The design of Nubrella’s new-age umbrella keeps it from inverting in windy environments. The absence of pointy poles that make up the traditional umbrella deems the Nubrella a safer weather guard.

The third installment from Stone Island Shadow is yet another collaboration with Bagjack, a messenger bag that acts as a backpack or briefcase (and of course a messenger bag). The Bagjack x Stone Island Shadow 2010 Messenger Backpack will act as a backpack if you have the lid zipped and straps across your chest, if you leave the lid zip open you have a messenger bag, and if you have the lid flipped towards the back covering the strap system you have a briefcase. The Bagjack x Stone Island Shadow comes in a medium size, so its a bit smaller than the messenger bag offered by the company. Retail is 499 EUR.

The Nirve Portable MP3 Speaker is a cost effective way for cycling around town with tunes safely.
