GPS-Enabled Blazer Directs Its Wearer Through Gentle Vibration [Video]
Wearable Experiments' Navigate jacket is now programmed for the city to let people enjoy a map-free existence.
The NAVIGATE jacket by Wearable Experiments helps wearers go around New York City through the GPS tactile system built into its sleeves and shoulders.
The urban wayfinding jacket comes with an app that stores the destinations and uploads it into the jacket. The NAVIGATE jacket uses haptic feedback to give directions to the wearer, who feels them as light vibrations on their shoulders. The jacket alerts the wearer when and where to turn and makes traveling around a hands-free and map-free experience.
