GNSS fashion

The NAVIGATE jacket helps the wearer find her destination using integrated LED lighting and haptic feedback.

The stylish jacket has LEDs tailored into the sleeve - the lights indicate how far to the next turn and the current stage of the journey, and vibrations alert the user actually when to turn and in which direction.

The companion app stores relevant destinations and uploads the directions to the jacket - the makers explain that the wearer can then walk unimpeded by the likes of a smartphone.

In the maker's words 'The technology built into the jacket is subtle and unobtrusive and, most importantly for this target market, the design is appealing - it’s a fashion garment not just a functional device, created for the retail explorer . . the NAVIGATE jacket takes urban wayfinding to a new level, allowing users to explore completely hands free. It is a world first that will redefine the experience of getting from A to B.'
