The Paperclip Armrest is what every air traveller has been dreaming of the moment the person next to them stole the armrest. This design concept is by Hong Kong-based Paperclip Design Limited, which ‘solves the problems inherent in the typical shared armrest concept so often employed in high-density seating like airplanes by providing an elevated spot for a second forearm to rest’.

Looks good, right? But it still looks like you have to get within the other person’s personal space to even use this thing. I think I prefer just sitting on my hands for that 12-hour flight.
