Compass H2O: ephemeral wayfinding
Our lives are dominated by the relentless need to get From Point A to Point B. It’s necessary in a fast-paced, deadline-driven world. But it’s both unhealthy and unsatisfying to never stop and smell the roses.
Ephemeral Wayfinding is an invitation to wander, to linger, to loiter, to be a 21st century flâneur.
Compass H2O is a wrist worn compass that enables you to experience a place with another person:
• The Famous: Andy Warhol’s walking tour of New York City
• The Personal: Walking Shanghai with your grandmother when she was young
• The Familiar: Exploring Amsterdam in the company of the breadcrumbs your college roommate left there last summer.
Compass H2O is hands-free and map-free wayfinding that provides a more personal and immerse travel experience. Compass H2O believes that sometimes the road less traveled can make all the difference. It points to discovery and surprise.
