One of the most uncomfortable parts of public transportation for me is having people invade my personal bubble. You have to get cozy sometimes when trains and buses are crowded, and it’s not pleasant for anyone. Designer Siew Ming Cheng came up with a solution to maintain personal space and keep strangers at a distance: a vest full of spikes. Genius. However, the prototype is made of from a flexible plastic material which wouldn’t be a huge deterrent. Hopefully the spikes would look intimidating enough to keep others at bay.
