‘Pilgrim’ Compass uses #Arduino and @Yelp API to Send You on a Journey

Pilgrim is a compass programmed with Arduino, that provides a tangible interface for discovery without a digital screen. Pilgrim magnetically points people in the direction of their desired location, sourcing data directly from the Yelp API.

During the experience of searching for a new place, people are overwhelmed by too many options, losing the element of surprise. The metaphor of the compass is used as a return to the past – a sailor’s journey, which was characterized by the feeling of fate and lack of control, leading to an eventual unexpected discovery.
