Protecting Your Personal Space With A Spikey Vest

December 4, 2013


Meet Spike Away, the brainchild of industrial designer Siew Ming Cheng. It protects your personal space by poking anybody who gets too close. It's perfect for crowded trains. It's not perfect for cuddling and watching a movie with a lover. Did I mention it's waterproof? You can wear it in the shower! Why you'd wear it in the shower is another question, one that probably involves wondering what you'd look like as a naked warrior.

Keep going for a couple more shots of the design.




Thanks to ROM, who protects personal space the old fashioned way: not showering. Not showering and cacti.

    On another news blindness rates among children who uses public transport increases in 500% possible a consequence of Fukushima.

    Awesome until the train stops suddenly and you impale everyone in front of you...

    With that face, he/she didn't need it!

  • Hector

    Yeah your right! Maybe if she was better looking she could get felt up in public like everyone else.

    I've been on public transport all over the world, this would just be a dick move to wear. Yes, having a stranger push up against you is uncomfortable, but in large cities you just have to deal with that if you want the transit system to work.

    I think I'd have it with shorter, rubber spikes. Enough to just keep a person from touching you (lots of people have anxiety about being touched), but not to injure a person or be obnoxious.

    Judging from the images this is likely in Japan. That being said groping in their overly crowded subways is an all too common occurance. Granted this is nowhere near the best solution, I do understand where they're coming from.

  • Isaac King

    Yeah, I had the same thought. While it may make you more comfortable, it will make everyone else much more cramped, which I think goes against the whole idea of public transit. If a guy wore this he would probably get beaten up!
