Giant Rubber Bands Help Plane Passengers Tune Out Their Neighbors
B-Tourist is an airplane seat attachment that provides privacy, storage and calm.
There are tons of things to hate about flying. Besides delays, turbulence, security, nasty food, and missed transfers, air passengers are stuck in uncomfortable chairs next to people they don’t know and given less privacy than elbow room. So in addition to getting up to allow your neighbor access to the bathroom, fliers also have to be concerned about whether people are judging what they watch, how they eat, or how they look sleeping.
Idan Noyberg and Gal Bulka thought about issues fliers face such as these and came up with the B-Tourist strip, a rubber-band like airplane seat attachment designed to increase flight comfort.
