overcome inertia / Handle public transportation

overcome inertia
overcome inertia

People using public transportation, especially a jampacked bus suffer troubles caused by the law of inertia. People standing in a bus try every efforts to keep balance and not to be pushed aside. While holding a strap, they are expecting that it would support them like a column.
To improve this problem, "Overcome Inertia" makes most use of people's gripping power on a strap. Each unit is flexible at normal times, but the gap between units becomes narrower and firmer when grasped by people. The stronger gripping power is, the stronger inertia becomes, which in turn makes a strap firmer and stronger.
