While almost everyone has a GPS in the form of a smartphone nowadays, one of the problems with having such devices is that users have trouble reading the maps while on the move at the same time, especially while on a vehicle like a bicycle. A hobbyist named Josh Billions put together a messenger bag with a GPS, a LilyPad Arduino microcontroller, and 8 vibration motors sewn into the bag. The microcontroller constantly checks the his position on the GPS relative to a user-defined waypoint i.e. home, and alerts the user with vibrations on the bag. Through constant usage of the bag, soon enough he wasn’t relying on street signs to tell where he was, but from the vibrations on the motors instead. Head here to find out more about the MapBag.
