An inventor develops a flying umbrella that follows you during the rain!

Carrying an umbrella over your head during rain can often lead to a painful arm cramp, but a famous YouTube inventor offers a solution with a flying umbrella that follows the user.
The homemade gadget includes a disposable yellow parachute and 3D-printed components with propellers on the end. The user must control the umbrella using a remote control to ensure that it remains above the head.

However, the inventor is now planning to create a better version of the parachute that can autonomously track and follow the person underneath.

“Parachutes haven't really changed in 4,000 years, and the basic design is exactly the same,” the engineer says on the YouTube channel I Build Stuff . “But it's 2024, and I don't even have to carry my parachute. So today I'm going to make the first parachute that flies, I mean "What could go wrong?"

As the young engineer points out, other attempts to make a flying parachute have been made in the past. But they got it wrong largely because the fans were in the wrong place, attached to the handle or on top of the canopy, leaving no room for airflow.

So, for his flying parachute, he attached the propellers so that they protruded from the sides of the parachute.

The canopy consists of a central X-shaped frame made up of four arms made of carbon fibre, which is strong and light at the same time.

Each arm has a propeller and motor at the end, making the device look like a cross between a parachute and a drone.

Many of the device's components were designed on the Onshape software platform before being 3D printed.

The device took "months" to build and included a major setback due to poor soldering, but in the end it was ready for trial operation.

The video showed that his flying parachute was successful at first, but the slightest gust of wind caused it to falter in the second round.

The YouTube user said: “During the second flight, the parachute started drifting away and I barely managed to catch it in time before it hit the fence.”

In another test the next day, the parachute began shaking violently before it fell to the ground, and that wasn't even during rainy weather.

Since then, a fix has made the device "more stable than before", but whether it actually flies during heavy rain has yet to be seriously proven.


Google enhances the capabilities of its maps with artificial intelligence

Google announced that it is working to integrate artificial intelligence technologies into Google Maps services.

Google indicated on its official websites that the artificial intelligence technologies that it will integrate into its maps will make it easier for users to easily find places or things that interest them. Some people, for example, are interested in traveling, and some have a pet and are looking for a suitable place to walk with them, and with simple keywords entered in the search lists. The artificial intelligence will search for those words and things related to them, and Google Maps will display many options related to these keywords or places that the user is searching for.
For example, if a person wants to visit a specific city, all he has to do is enter the name of the city in the search list in the maps, and the artificial intelligence will perform a comprehensive search, and will display to the user various information about the most important tourist attractions in the city, and information about shopping places and places of commercial activities, It will also show him pictures of those places, ratings, and suggestions for places to visit.

According to Google, the LLMs will analyze detailed map information about more than 250 locations around the world, help users find the places they want to visit, and present them with the best options.
