Watch: Man makes wearable umbrella with hangers, Shashi Tharoor calls it 'useful engineering'
Many people pointed out that this umbrella is only useful during a light rain, and not during heavy winds and rain
When you are a creative person, then sky is the limit. The innovative mind of humans can result in the invention of so many useful things. We needed to transport goods easily, so we came up with wheels. We needed to travel large distances fast, so the aircraft was invented. Whenever there has been a need, humans have almost always come up with a solution. This fact has been reaffirmed in a viral video in which a man makes a wearable umbrella using two hangers. He applies the hangers on the stick of the umbrella using tape. He then easily wears it like a bag, takes his belongings, and starts walking.
The video was originally shared by an account named DJ Neel on Twitter with the caption, “Apun ko bhi aisa chattri maangta. (I also want such an umbrella.)”.

Many people pointed out that this umbrella is only useful during a light rain, and not during heavy winds and rain.
“In Mumbai, this is going to be very useless. Holding onto an umbrella is a real struggle there,” a person said.

A user commented, “Sir, this will only be beneficial in drizzle and light rain. It can be dangerous to wear this in heavy windy rains.”
Sir, This will work only in drizzle and light rain. Wearing this in heavy windy rains can be dangerous.
