Video: Personal Misting Umbrella

Carlos Kato, inventor of the Personal Misting Umbrella, came up with the idea on his way home to his East El Paso home two summers ago.

“I saw a woman sitting at a bus stop and she had a bag of groceries, one of those spray water bottles, and an umbrella. And she was spraying herself off,” Kato said. “I thought, ‘Man, she’s carrying a lot of stuff. Maybe I can make something easier.'”

Kato has collaborated with a company to design a prototype. He explained that the umbrella would be lined with tubes and a container with water that would be released with a button.
