The Eco-Brolly frame instantly converts a discarded newspaper, plastic bag, magazine, etc., into a stop-gap umbrella.
It's a highly portable solution for those of us who are often only running building to transport - or just need to make it to the nearest shelter/coffee shop/happy hour with appearance intact.
Designed by Shiu Yuk Yuen, the pictorial tutorial (would that be a pictutorial?) appears below. The basic frame is purse-, tote- and nearly pocket-friendly.
