Not just “auto-opening and closing”- this is the real deal.

Hold the buttons down to fully open or close the ShedRain e-Motion Umbrella, or use single presses to open and close it in steps. Don’t buy this if you’re superstitious, because it’s going to become your new favorite fidget toy indoors and out.

Tragically, the e-Motion doesn’t recharge over USB (though it does recharge), and it certainly lacks the style and ergonomics of Blunt, but the world didn’t end before we finally got an automatic umbrella. High fives all around.
