good idea but needs design work

I see how this can be useful because when you get in your car after using the umbrella out in the rain, you don't want to make your car wet but it inevitably gets wet when you close your umbrella as you sit down in your car. So if the umbrella can be closed in a way that will keep the water outside of the car, it would be great.

However, the body of the umbrella is ridiculously bulky and ugly looking.
