Jake Gyllenhaal made it cool to live in a bubble in "Bubble Boy", and Nubrella is making it luxurious. Made of "state of the art clear thermoplastic polyurethane" (read: warm saran wrap), this spring-loaded gadget is designed to keep you warm, dry, and seriously conspicuous. ($60 from nubrella.com)
It's just so hard using umbrellas that would make you bump into someone or something because you didn't see it. Good thing this thing is invented! :D It would make one look forward for the rain to come.

How very Scarlett Johansson in "Lost in Translation."
