The sat nav in your car isn’t too accurate? Can’t figure out how to use an old fashioned map? Phone app sends you in the wrong direction? They say the only person you can truly rely on is yourself and this idea really puts that theory to the test.

Never thought of strapping electrodes to your legs and becoming a human sat nav? Silly you! Hopefully with this new invention, you’ll never get lost again, even though you’ll now have no excuse to be late for anything.

The electrodes make your leg muscles contract, meaning they can gently turn you in the right direction. Not to worry though, apparently it’s easy to override them if you need to!

Who knows, maybe one day the human sat nav will help you find your way home after a messy night out with friends…
