Compass – A wearable that senses the magnetic north

Created by Jelle Reith, Compass is a wearable suit designed out of three pieces with each including movable flaps that work together and ‘point’ north. The actuators work using static and electromagnets and they create a perfect loop with the sensor embedded in the suit; they sense magnetic north, and the magnets display this information.
