Rain Smart is Your Car’s Best Companion During Monsoons

Rain Smart is Your Car’s Best Companion During Monsoons

Be it a heavy downpour or just a drizzle, getting wet while you step in and out of a car during a rainy day is inevitable. You can try out whatever tactics you feel like but the results won’t be too satisfactory. Take me for example. I have tried out numerous techniques of holding the umbrella at a perfect angle and preventing my car seat and myself from getting wet when I step out of the car or try to get in during rainy days. But the result has always been the same. Not only did I get wet; I also made the car seat as well as all my accessories get wet at the same time. Yeah, that’s sounds like a terrible experience and I am pretty much accustomed to it (not willingly ofcourse!).

I know there are many of you out there who go through similar situations during monsoons and could do with a handy solution such as the Rain Smart. It’s not a gadget highlighting some futuristic sci-fi enriched technology. In fact, it’s just the opposite. A simple DIY installation for your car, the purpose of which is to make sure you and your car stays far away from getting wet during those rainy days. No opening umbrellas in a hurry. No getting your car seat wet because of the rain anymore. Now it’s time to handle it in style!

Tent-Like Umbrella For Your Car

To put it in simple words, the Rain Smart is a tent-like umbrella you can attach to the inside of the doorframe of your car. Whenever you’ll open the door a special fabric (attached from one end to the frame and from the other to the inside of the door) will unroll itself from the topside of the doorframe and create a rain shield that way.

Be it the driver or a passenger, getting in and out of the car during rainfalls will become easy and hassle free from now and on. As described on their Indiegogo campaign, “You can calmly sit or stand beneath the rain guard, set your belongings inside, shake the excess water off the umbrella and close it, get in your seat and finally close the door.” Even when not in use, you can easily store Rain Smart inside the doorframe of your car.

Best Way to Overcome Rain From Your Car

Since the Rain Smart follows the shape of your car doorframe (pilot and copilot), the water will always slide towards the front of the door and on the ground. There is a self-winding cylinder which uses various spring rollers to roll and unroll the fabric as and when the door opens or closes.

The fabric used will be lightweight, thin, flexible, waterproof, non-absorbent, resistant against the elements, resistant to corrosive chemicals, resistant to abrasion, has a low friction coefficient and has an ability to conduct heat. It’s a device that will solve one of the most difficult problems we often face during monsoons and sudden downpours.

That unnecessary hassle you go through while rushing into your car during rainy days can rest in peace forever. Starting from a pre-order price of $99, this is one of the best life hacks you can give your car! Happy Gadgeting!
