Last year, we caught wind of a company called Roof for Two that had a cool project under wraps, no pun intended: A portable, fold-flat, quickly-deployable rain shield for a motorcycle. We contacted them, but they couldn't send us video or images of it at the time, as they were in the midst of applying for both a design patent and a utility patent.
Well, the wait is over: The patents have been granted, and a demo video of what they're calling the RainRunner is ready.
Would those of you with motorcycle experience use one of these? While the concept looks cool to a non-biker like me, the company has been struggling; they're currently lights-out, due to problems acquiring seed funding. Your opinions could provide some useful insight.
Edit: David Chen, Co-Founder of Roof for Two, writes: "We actually designed [the RainRunner] solely for motorcycle riders in India."
