Vibrating GPS rings – stylish and functional

Yes, that is right. A British designer, Gail Knight, has invented rings with embedded GPS that vibrates to help its wearer find their way in unfamiliar places. While stylish, they come in a pair, and you have to wear one on each hand, as well as a device controller (either around your neck or clipped on). The left or right rings buzz for turns, with a separate buzz for forward or back. When you’re going the wrong way, they both buzz to let you know.

No word on whether Gail has any plans to create a consumer version, so for now I guess we will all have to stick with our less-stylish paper maps, GPS receivers, smart phones, etc.
