Tha Business: A Pocket Self-Defense Kit for Commuters

“Tha Business” is a self defense kit designed to target those brave commuters and business folk who sometimes face sticky situations. Hoang and Anh Nguyen of Creative Session took inspiration from a pocket-sized magnifying glass and deck of cards and translated it to a compact, James Bond-style card kit of defense items including pepper spray, "brass knuckles," a pocket knife and whistle. The idea of the concept is for the owner to choose the specific card that they would need in order to be prepared for their specific situation.
