Jacket that gives you right directions

Smart jacketThe directions are visualised on the sleeves. LED light lets the wearer know how far they are before the next turn and the current phase of their journey.

A smart jacket which has vibrating sleeves to point the wearer in the right direction has been developed.

The 'Navigate' jacket comes with an accompanying app that stores destinations and uploads the directions to the jacket with the built-in GPS system.

The directions are visualised on the sleeves. LED light lets the wearer know how far they are before the next turn and the current phase of their journey.

Vibrations let the wearer know when to turn and in which direction, Mashable reported.

"The jacket takes urban wayfinding to a new level allowing users to explore completely hands free," says Wearable Experiments, the company behind the product.

The technology built into the jacket is subtle and unobtrusive and the design is appealing, according to the company which calls the jacket "a fashion garment not just a functional device".
