    It's a good old tradition when a man holds an umbrella for his lady, however, modern technologies seem to take it a step further.

    Free Parasol is an umbrella drone which can be used hands-free. Special software installed in the drone is able to detect the top of a person's head and remain afloat above it.

    Due to restrictions pertaining to the areas where drones are allowed to fly, hands-free umbrellas can only be used on private property, in places such as golf courses.
