The next time it rains, you may want to grab a nubrella.According to the manufacturer, a nubrella is the world's first completely hands-free umbrella.

It takes about 30 seconds to get the nubrella strapped on -- it attaches to your shoulders.

As long as you don't mind people staring at you, you can walk around in a big bubble without fear of getting wet.

The early reviews for the nubrella are mixed.

"It's different, but it looks like it's functional," said one person on the street.

"I don't think I would (use it) because I'm a man, it's more of a woman type thing," said another person.

You'd think a postman might be interested in such a contraption, but one postman said he didn't think it looked very professional.

The nubrella costs about $50.
