This umbrella is compatible with Android and iOS devices, and is used to track the distance between the smartphone and the umbrella. For example, if the application found that the distance between the users of mobile phones and the umbrella is 30 feet (about 9 meters), it would be that the user may will forget, umbrella and directly to the user mobile phone send a message to remind.

Founder Dave Kahng, who is considering using GPS tracking chips to replace bluetooth, wants to keep costs as low as possible while making sure people don't lose their umbrellas. He said that the bluetooth chip inside the umbrella, which has an ordinary button battery for energy support, would not need to be replaced for a year or two.
