DROP GPS system is a hand-held tactile device for the visually impaired.

Designers Allan Sejer Madsen and Lukasz Natkaniec have developed the “DROP” conceptual GPS system for the visually impaired. The GPS system is in the shape of a hand disk which senses its location using GPS technology, and features a grid of movable 3D dots, so that the user can feel the maps. It also has zoom, search and voice command features as well.
