Corona Closit

Personal cell for stadiums and malls
  [vote for,

Four clear lightweight plastic walls surround you, suspended from your shoulders, creating a closed closet. A small gyroscope keeps it level at all times. An umbrella encloses it from above.

Anybody who wishes to enter the stadium or mall must use one.

There are sleeves and gloves for reaching and taking things, but you cannot enter the stuff into your safe cell space. When done, leave the cell and retrieve your belongings.

And the nicest part about it is that you can hug people and dance with them. Its a bit clunky but still.

A snorkel like pipe with a filter brings air from above and pushes out it out from the bottom so there's always a flow of fresh air downwards.

Green leaves attached to your pants do photosynthesis in the light, adding slightly to the oxygen content of your air for a better feeling. (That part was added so you can say that this is bad science)

Even though posted two days after mine. My idea was about how NOT to need a suit [pashute, Aug 10 2020]


       Remarkably bakeable and practical, would actually work, no downsides (apart from fashion but who cares about that)   

       If the cell was opaque you could go around in the noody but you'd need a window to see out of that was not too big for other people to see in.   

       You would need windscreen wipers to go out in the rain.   

       You need an elasticated waist deck like kayakers use to seal around your tummy.

       Next up, high fashion runway models with absurdist masks...

       I briefly saw a video on the FastCompany website with an advertisement showing a guy wearing a neat clear plastic box which allows him to pick up groceries...   

       But I can't find it. It may have been a parody laughing at the idea. It looked a lot like the top of the square personal tent from 2010 in the links, but was held by a backpack or maybe tied to his shoulders. Could you help me find it?

       Voice, it would allow games and theatres and weddings to open up again to the crowds. Wouldn't that be a good thing?

       Covid still going strong. Anybody see the movie I referred to? I can't find it...

       Coronavirus mutates and is very widely spread. As such it's as pervasive as many other viruses, but not nearly as deadly. Are we going to wear facemasks forever? This paranoia and authoritarianism is killing more people than the virus!
Voice, Sep 01 2020

       What [Voice] said, but much more loudly, insistently, and with a total lack of compassion and human sympathy.   

       Median fatality: 75 years old, 2 or more life-limiting conditions, 3 or more regular medications, 1-year survival 17% or less.   

       No wonder the care homes have disproportionate casualties; the bug does what these bugs always do, hacking down the old and the ill.   

       If you're under 65 and in reasonable health, you have (minimum) 3 times greater chance of dying in a vehicle accident.   

       At the time of writing, in the UK, fatalities from ordinary boring old-fashioned influenza are running at between 2 and 3 times the level of COVID "fatalities". And these are fatalities FROM influenza, not just WITH influenza - the virus actually causes death, not just a contributory factor.

       A stout, rabbit-proof fence enclosing a couple of million square kilometers is also known to be effective.
