#594: Parasuit

Inspired by origami, today’s invention is a parachute which is folded into the shape of an overall.

This could then be integrated into the rear surface of a one-piece flight suit, wearable by everyone travelling by air. Rather than have to carry a bulky parachute, or to grab and don one in an emergency, people would be always ready to make an escape from their aircraft by wearing a folded chute, distributed around their body.

The folding could be done in such a way as to minimise the thickness around areas of flexure such as elbows and knees -and thus maintain maximal flexibility in use.
