This is a concept design to encourage people to meet potential partners in the streets. What a romantic solution! The Lampbrella design, which is created by Mikhail Belyaev, incorporates a rain and motion sensor into the shaft of the streetlamp and opens up the umbrella canopy when it rains. It's a clever integration of a street lamp and umbrella, but my only worry is that it may end up injuring someone while opening or closing.
