North Paw anklet points to the north

We would say that the North Paw anklet is some sort of mystical geek device that ought to thrill nerds out there who do spend a fair amount of time in Role Playing Games – after all, this nifty little anklet will always let you know where North is, thanks to eight cellphone vibrator motors located around the ankle. A control unit that holds an electronic compass will sense magnetic north, jump-starting the appropriate motor to inform you of where North is at that point in time. The North Paw anklet is the result of a subsequent experimentation with the Feelspace research performed at the Cognitive Psychology department of the University of Osnabrück in Germany. Nifty – we would like to see this commercialized to come with a GPS navigation system for outdoor lovers.
