“Extending your perception of reality using technology isn’t just an idea anymore. It’s a choice.”
This compass will vibrate whenever you are facing North. It will have a companion app for adjustable settings. Most importantly it requires that two surface-to-surface barbells are installed in your chest.
It seems there are a few issues. The battery is not figured out and the unit will cost roughly $350 USD. Quantities will be limited to 2,000 units. Plus you are on your own for finding an installer.
The most inspiring part of this project is that we can easily hack together a less elegant wearable version of this to partake in the experience.
