Picture it. You're standing on a packed train, sandwiched between a sweaty armpit and a guy's backpack. How satisfying would it be to have some sort of device to push them away and create a non-smelly safety bubble?
Well Hong Kong City University student Kathleen McDermott has answered all your commuting prayers with her Personal Space Dress.
What is a personal space dress we hear you say? Simple. It's a dress with two proximity censors and a plastic armature that allow the dress to expand if anyone gets too close. Basically like a big electric umbrella.
Now we're not too keen on the design (it was inspired by the Chanel dress worn by Keira Knightley and Rihanna), but we like the gist of it.
And if you do to, there's even a tutorial to make your own, although use on the London tube at your own risk
