Abstract: The Rainmaker is a personal umbrella combined with a pressurized misting system. Misting nozzles attach directly to the ribs of the canopy, using the ribs as an avenue for pressurized liquid. These objects do not hinder the ability to operate the opening and closing of the umbrella. The shaft of the umbrella acts as a reservoir and contains the water for misting. The handle doubles as a hand pump, creating the necessary pressure needed to create a proper mist. This self-contained unit promises a mobile, self-reliant, ecology minded, personal cooling, and humidified surroundings.
