the ‘b-tourist’ designed by graduates of the bezalel academy of art and design in israel, idan noyberg and gal bulka is made of an elastic fabric that fits many seats sizes. after assembling the piece, it offers one their own private space to quietly eat, read a book, watch a movie and to sleep without being disturbed. the side of the material has a pocket inserted into it where one can place small items they may wish to keep close by during the flight. plastic rings are also applied along the edge, which enable the width to be easily adjusted.

  • Many new built planes are stopping the use of built-in LCD screens in the headrest, so in a few years this is a less of problem.
    So the success will be more about how seat structure of most planes, can it be attached without going over the front seats headrest completely etc. Though someone else’s fabric is worse than a the fabric on the seat, it’s not like the wash them in between every flight

  • Cute, but those in front, behind and possibly beside have every right to object and can’t see any airline being thrilled about its potential safety problems so doubt they would permit them for very long.

  • this idea is ludicrous. if someone tried to strap that to my seat i would simply take it off, no explanation, i would just do it.
    if i was in the window seat and either the middle or aisle seat had this, i would take many bathroom breaks even though i rarely ever take one, i would just do it to piss the person off

  • really you need this on a plane.*face palm* well i guess we can filter out the assholes with this. i guess the creators are just as pitiful. if you want privacy so damn bad get rich and buy a jet.

    oh and for safety reasons this will not be accepted on the plane, it is a hazard to the people next to you.
    *face palm*

  • I like the idea of privacy, but I cannot imagine that the person in front of you would permit you to wrap that thing around their seat. And how about the person in back of you,do you think they would allow you to cover up their TV screen? How about a nice big fan shaped thing that can be put beside your head to shield you from your neighbors? Better yet, don’t fly if you don’t want to be near people.

  • Well, Jubidee, as the pictures show, this gadget does intrude into other passengers’ personal spaces. Also, while it may block someone else’s discharge when s/he sneezes, the discharge sticks to the fabric until you wash it out.

  • Dumbest thing ever. And the fact that you have to hook it over the seat in front of you? Who is going to let you hook your stupid curtain over their seat? Jesus.
