Vodafone has unveiled its Booster Brolly for this year's music festival season.
The umbrella's powered by a series of solar panels, with the electrical current generated also powering a micro antenna, boosting a phone's 3G signal wirelessly.
The multi-purpose gadget, which will be trialled at the Isle of Wight Festival next weekend, also boasts an LED torch for night time navigation and a 'hands free' smart phone cradle.
The gadget's been created in collaboration with scientists at University College London.
