Pinch Hanger - Save your necks!

Being a mechanical engineer myself, I'm a sucker for innovations that are entirely mechanical - they prove that we haven't ceded everything to the digital world just yet!  So my thanks goes out to design student Jaineel Shah and his Pinch Hanger, which rethinks the interaction between shirts and hangers.  The right geometry and material allow the hangar to squeeze together, making it small enough to not stretch the necks of your shirts.  It hits all the sweet spots: it's simple, intuitive, and functional in an obvious way.  It even passes the "why didn't I think of that?" test.  Well done, Jaineel - let's see this on the market soon!
