I came across a new product that just might be able to help. (Thanks Gogo for posting about this on Facebook a couple of days back.)
The B-Tourist is a product made of elastic fabric which offers a passenger their own private space to quietly eat, read a book, watch a movie and to sleep without being disturbed.
To set up the B-Tourist you need to place the fabric over your seat’s headrest and also over the seat in front of you. Good luck getting this done without hearing some sort of complaint.
If you’re in a middle or aisle seat it will definitely be a pain removing the B-Tourist each time someone wants to get up out of their seat!
The B-Tourist was created by designers Idan Noyberg & Gal Bulka.
Some benefits of the product:
- Use the adjustment rings to be private or public
- There are storage pouches built in to keep small valuable safe and within reach
- Get a more comfortable nap since you’ll have somewhere to rest your head
- Privacy for dinner & coffee breaks
Check out a couple of more photos:
Would you be interested in using the B-Tourist? I think that I’d feel pretty silly setting it up and then attempting to hide behind it.
