The perfect travel gadget to ignore your fellow passengers

Cape Town - Ever boarded a flight and just wanted to close your eyes and go to sleep, or maybe just allow yourself to be drawn even further into you page turner, only to have the person in the seat next to you start jabbering away?

We've all been there. Sigh! 

Well, the good news is that someone has actually developed a funky little travel gadget that will CLEARLY indicate that you are simply not open to conversation.

Say hello to the B-Tourist! A simple design that consists of a stretchy fabric snood of sorts that you can hook over the headrest on your own seat and the one in front of you to create a private little booth.

Designed by Gal Bulka and Idan Noyberg, the B-Tourist "offers [travellers] their own private space to quietly eat, read a book, watch a movie and sleep without being disturbed." 

It's width can be adjusted by shifting two plastic rings along the length of the fabric. 

Now just to work up the nerve to be one of the first to actually use it!
