An Armistice in Armrest Battles

Hate bumping elbows with your neighbor on an airplane? It's among the most common traveler complaints, and one that could be remedied in 2015 by Soarigami, a plastic armrest divider. Soarigami slides onto the armrest and splits it equally between neighboring seats. Its inventors believe it will foster a pleasant travel experience for both passengers. This is a departure from other carry-on items, like the "Knee Defender," which allows a passenger to block another from reclining his or her seat—a move that caused an in-flight fracas last August.

I hate the armrest battle! I get it on trains, it's rarely a woman, it's usually a male thing. I don't want your elbows in my ribcage!
Bus peeve: men again, don't 'rest' your thigh against mine. I edge over & over, arse in the aisle, why do that?

I agree with NeuroticHellFem.
A complete seat divider would be more welcome in many cases of this insensitive- intentional or unintentional- trespassing on the space of someone sitting next to you.

Nothing like the generosity of makers of gadgets: ""In terms of etiquette, we don't want to force people to behave one way or another. Our goal is to lighten the mood and make the skies funner and savvier.""

All this for about $30!

Looks like the wings might jab your neighbor in the ribs.

I agree with NeuroticHellFem and rd387.

We have no subway in Maine, however, my years spent in cities I would always have something with me to hold wide from my body; such as an umbrella, flashlight, etc. Let the Mashers get mashed by your umbrella...stick that in Their ribs. No one Ever touched me. I would have to hurt them.

This new contraption is way overdue; hope it works!
