Japanese designer Kota Nezu has recently released this Clock Parasol, something that has drawn an inspiration from sun dials. It comes with many lines on the board of the umbrella—the vertical lines indicating hours while the horizontal lines indicating solstices and equinoxes. It is also built with a compass on the handle, which helps you to find magnetic north. Based on those designs, you only need to place the hood in the same position of the earth, look up at the umbrella and then get an approximate time.
