Unless you’re flying first-class, being inside an airplane can feel like a cramped tomb of despair, agony and discomfort.
Sometimes you get lucky and the seat next to you remains empty, but for everyone else, there’s an ongoing struggle for armrest dominance.
In 2015, that could no longer be the case. “Soarigami,” a patent pending invention for the skies, is a fold-able partition that you pack in your carry-on. Its design is very much like a bendable iPad cover, but the “Soarigami” turns into a paper airplane-like barrier that divides a single armrest into two even playing fields.
The product’s co-creator, Grace Chang, told Condé Nast Traveler, “Unlike products like the Knee Defender, Soarigami fosters a sharing environment that makes the skies just a bit friendlier.”
Currently, the “Soarigami” is not available, but the site says it should be ready by early 2015. You can sign up to the pre-buy list to be notified when they’re ready.
Just imagine, a world where laying down an elbow isn’t a challenge to a duel.
