Since maintaining a good and steady amount of personal space is often a priority for many people, Repel by Zac Ong is a helpful tool that ensures it is never compromised. It is a wearable device, quite like a bandolier, which allows the wearer to send a clear message to others as to how close they are allowed to get to the wearer.

Repel by Zac Ong is equipped with a rotating shoulder-mounted laser that clearly marks the boundary that a person is not allowed to cross. It also boasts sensors that alert the wearer when his or her personal space has been compromised by way of LEDs and buttons that blink and spin with increasing speed the closer the intruder gets.
