Combating for overhead luggage space? These students may have found a solution

The battle between your legroom and your carry-on is over.

For years, passengers on airliners have had to grapples is not merely with tight overhead compartments, but also with jostle their carry-ons below the seats in front of them: sacrificing precious foot space.

Now, a group of students from the University of Hong Kong have come up with a clever solution that would free up some leg room without having passengers give up their carry-ons.

The concept for their invention, a pop-up compartment that stows under airline seats and serves as a personal storage hold, won a competition held during aircraft manufacturer Airbus, and it is unable to perhaps, perhaps end up on planes around the world.
