Pileus Wired Video Umbrella

According to the Pileus website…

Pileus is an umbrella connected to the Internet to make walking in rainy days fun. Pileus has a large screen on the top surface, a built-in camera, a motion sensor, GPS, and a digital compass, and it provides two main functions; A Social Photo-sharing and A 3D Map Navigation.
The umbrella users services such as “Flickr”, “YouTube” and “Google earth”

Is it for real, will we see it on the streets?
