a coat with an integrated electronic & visual compass. north is indicated through glowing plant-like pattern on the outside of the jacket. the coat contains 24 sections that can light up individually, using EL wires. the section that points north lights up while its surrounding sections glow dimly. as soon as the person turns, the light will gradually move onto the new section that points north, presenting the direction in a very natural analogue form. in this way the coat provides a sense of direction as opposed to a perfectly sharp digital reading.
