I support forward thinking design. This looks ridiculous.

That's the second biggest cone of silence I've ever seen.

Or they could do a better job getting everyone vaccinated.

I promise you the inside of those plastic bubbles will  be crawling with the lung juice and boogers of the last 50 guests.  Even if they are wiped down properly there will still be streaks and artifacts on the plastic that will freak you out.  They also probably smell awful with all the VOCs offgassing.

I mean you could just go get the vaccine. Or breathe in a snot-laden plastic bubble that smells like a cheap sex toy.

Someone is going to look at that and think it will be perfect as a full body umbrella or as a barrier against germs in the public.

I have no desire to crop-dust myself. It's something that needs to be gifted to others.

I can't tell if that model provides any way for the user to reach outside of the cone of protection.

Here's one approach but it probably sucks during strong wind blows.

If a restaurant made you wear a full Hazmat suit to eat would you wear one that had been used by a hundred other people?

It looks like it's just an enlarged shade hanging from a light.  I'd build in a muffled exhaust vent and deal with the larger pole required.  By pulling air upwards it would help limit your breath spilling out underneath and perhaps carrying some virus particles with it, and it would also draw the smell of your food towards your nose rather than blowing it away.

Then again, maybe this is the kind of thing we should be building into restaurant booths, rather than trying to make some retro-future apocalypse chic per-person design.

This looks like a fairly luxury dining experience. I'm guessing the bubbles are intended to be disposable single use things. Those diners can probably afford the added cost.

You don't like the smell of your own farts?

How do you know what a cheap sex toy smells like?
