  Safe Distance
 

Industry of the Ordinary carry out a public demonstration of their Remote Messaging Sticks™ (Patent Pending).

Who has not felt their personal space invaded in the claustrophobic confines of subway or elevator? Who has not attempted a ‘come hither’ look through a crowd of bodies only for it to be assumed they are suffering the ill effects of too much pudding?

With IOTO’s Remote Messaging Sticks, the inexact science of subliminal body language is no more. With the RMS system, the placement of a single, unambiguous message can be placed directly onto the person of your intended recipient. Now you too can make a simple declaration of mood or intent from across the dance floor or boardroom table. You too, from a safe distance, can encourage an odious body to remove himself and his vest from your immediate vicinity.

The socially awkward or put upon can now breathe easier.

N.B. Sentiments contained within the panoply of IOTO’s RMS system include acquiescences and rebuffs. Among our most popular lines are “Yes, Please”, and “Fuck Off”.
