FLORAbrella – LED Umbrella With a Color Sensor


By: anneke dejong











Umbrellas are pretty simple until you add lights and a color sensor. You can match the umbrella with the color of your clothing, it can match rain patterns, or display a rainbow. It also functions as a security device that helps people see you at night, or during the day.

The color sensor is linked with wires to the LED’s and when you touch the color sensor to something with color it detects the color and changes the LED’s to whatever color you matched it to.

It relates to engineering because the woman who made it took an ordinary umbrella and took it above and beyond by adding lights and a color sensor.
