Although we like to think that the world has shrunk, in fact many places are effectively off-limits to large sections of humanity. Today’s invention is a website designed to illustrate this to individuals.

A site visitor would be asked a series of questions, in the form of pulldown menus and tick boxes, -such as where they live, their age, their travel mode preferences, their medical history, any convictions, insurance status, contact with wildlife or farm animals, disposable income, party political allegiances, citizenship etc…


(Having eg deep-vein thrombosis, being under 18, having had a communist parent or requiring more medical cover than your wealth allows would all greatly limit the countries to which one could journey or be admitted).

This would then create a map of the world indicating those destinations to which the person could gain access.
