A traditional umbrella is known for poking users eyes.<br />
<br />
<br />
Inventor Jenan Kazim is turning world of the humble brollie inside out - after designing one that folds inwards to stop water dripping onto the floor.<br />
<br />
Rather than creating pools of rainwater on the floor when it is put away like standard umbrellas, Jenan's clever idea folds the opposite way collecting drips inside it.<br />
<br />
And thanks to its canny design which opens from the top rather than the bottom it puts paid to the age-old problem of poking passers-by in the head with brolly spokes.<br />
<br />
It also means users can stay dry for longer by putting their umbrellas down once they are sat inside their cars rather than before. <br />
<br />
The umbrella, which has been named the KAZbrella, will cost around 45 pounds when it is launched just in time for Britain's notoriously wet winter.
