Armrests seem to have been created to induce confrontation.
Give two strangers one armrest, and they will spend the next few hours awkwardly nudging each other’s limbs.
But those comfort wars could soon be put to rest thanks to one San Francisco-based startup’s brilliant invention.
It’s called the Soarigami, and it clips on to an armrest to give the people on either side equal amounts of space and plenty of it, separating their arms with a divider.
Made out of neoprene and plastic, the creation from Focus Product Design looks like a paper airplane but folds flat to fit into a bag for easy transport.
The Soarigami is still in its testing phase with a release projected for some point next year, according to Thrillist.
Frequent flyers can pre-order one now for $30 and avoid ever having their personal space breached again.
