The Sixth Sense

Develop an extra sense for a better orientation.

This project aims to provide users an additional sense, comparable to that of a bird. The Sixth Sense!
Birds feel the magnetic earth field and have a better orientation over long distances.
It’s part of their nature and necessary in order to reach warmer regions every winter.

The initial idea originated at the University Osnabrück, Germany. Vibration motors were mounted onto a belt and activated to point to the geological north-pole. The belt was very heavy but the idea was rather interesting.
