  5. 5. North PawHaptic Compass AnkletHaptic = touchinterfaceCompass = pointsnorthAnklet = wear onyour ankle
  6. 6. How it works NAlways vibratingThe motor which is onthe north side ofyour ankle vibratesPersistent sense ofdirection
  7. 7. Brain Plasticity Why is North Paw more awesome than a regular compass? Our brains naturally adapt to persistent new stimulus, integrating it into ourselves Push vs. Pull info Where are limits of “human”?
  8. 8. Heart Spark Pendant that flashes lights in time with your heart beat Social augmentation Conversation piece
