Origami-Inspired Device Could Make Air Travel More Comfortable

The Soarigami mimics paper airplanes to double armrest area and improve quality of life during air travel

Bogar Alonso

Soarigami is offering a solution to the Arm Rest Wars: a negotiated peace inspired by a shared loathing of arm rest drama and the origami design of a paper airplane. According to their website, the design came from a frustrated engineer folding an abandoned design into a paper airplane, then having a “eureka” moment when it landed upside down.

The final design still looks like that inspired toy flier, and slides onto standard arm rests to simultaneously provide extra arm room and put a divider in the middle. With Soarigami, two passengers can share the arm rest for the entire flight without the space turning into a single-serving demilitarized zone.
