I think this would be a great thing to not do.

Personal Safety Cage

  (+5, -3)

Made of kevlar in a see through mesh formation, it is shaped like a large dome that covers the exterior of your entire body with about a foot around your perimeter. It has wheels, so that you may move freely through the train station, supermarket, pool etc, with eye level and hand apertures so that you may buy sweets and shake hands with dignitaries.

If someone recognises you through the peephole, a quick twist of the cage will confuse them and you can trolley away discreetly behind a magazine rack or public sculpture.

       And if someone topples you over and pours petrol/gas on you? Nothing's as safe in this modern world as a good pair of sneakers.

       Not sure how freely you could walk through the airports.

       Turnstiles would be problematic.

       So would simply walking down a sidewalk. We'd have to create seperate walkways for the bubble-people to use so they wouldn't shove us non-bubblers into traffic.   

       Also, not sure how safe you would be with a cage that had holes in it for your hands. Couldn't an assassin just walk up and shoot you through the hole, Lee Harvey Oswald style?   

       AWESOME link, [idischler]!

       That's a great idea [Pa've] why don't you post it? Like: Everybody spends money on footwear instead of guns and the world is a better place! Would get mfd let's all, but what the hell!
