 Delta is a fantasy shield that expands to protect people.The shield was designed as a superhero prop for Sandra, a woman who runs a soup kitchen to care for and protect people. Sandra runs a soup kitchen in East Boston. She does this to care for and protect people who have been abandoned or who are homeless. Inspired by a scissor lift, the shield can hang compactly on a hook attached to a belt, and expands when the user pulls on it. It does this by having pivot points to move freely. Sandra said about how she gets stronger over time and took that idea to make a shape out of triangles that form a shield.
