In view of more and more violent demonstrations in the world, a product which is able to prevent both police and demonstrators from getting injured is indispensable. DISPERSE, combining dynamics and psychology, is a device which takes peace as its main concept to protect police and protesters during a demonstration. When protesters are gathering, there might be higher possibility of violence and peril. Through this design, the police are able to 1. Utilize the traversable honeycomb paths that will safely disperse the mass of protesters to reduce their collision force. 2. Reduce the risk of danger while dealing with the mass protesters who outnumber the police. 3. Effectively disperse the mass protesters and reduce their anger. 4. Set the device up safely, easily and quickly.
