iBrella

The iBrella is a design concept in which the manipulation of the iBrella controls the connected iPod.  For example, opening the iBrella initiates the Play command, whereas turning the iBrella to the left or right effects iPod volume.

I’m not sure how practical this is; for one thing it would look mighty out of place during fair weather.  However, it would probably make for one interesting re-enactment of Gene Kelly’s performance of Singing in the Rain, if the user were the type of person to dance and swing about on light poles when the skies open up.
