When flying, unless you have the luxury to be in first class, you’re probably going to be cramped into an economy seat just inches away from your neighbors. It can be hard to keep your personal space or have any privacy while flying. We’ve searched the web to find items that make it easier to protect your privacy and keep to yourself while flying.

The name says it all. This unique origami design will help you divide up the armrest and get a little extra space. What makes this paper creation great is that both you and your neighbor get space. It’s a nice ice–breaker, especially if you’re in the middle seat.
