AGE: Twenty two years old COMPANY: Privacy Pop HOMETOWN: Los Angeles, California For anyone that’s ever had a roommate, you know how much privacy can be an issue, especially in a dorm. Eric Mear learned this first hand during one of his semesters at the University of Southern California. Instead of sitting idly by, he took his privacy into his own hands. He ingeniously invented Privacy Pop, a pop-up personal tent that goes on your bed.
Privacy Pop is a bubble of solitude to do whatever it is that you do in private. Privacy Pop is made to keep your creepy roommate from staring at you while you sleep. Or when you need to…. you know.
Eric is revolutionizing the setup of dorms, hostels and even siblings’ rooms as he has taken some of the stress out of having a roommate.
