A pioneering British company has announced "Flat-Nav", a new device designed for navigation that is apparently 100% more energy efficient than traditional Sat-Nav as it does not require external power. It also does not require a satellite signal, and can simply be folded away when not in use.
"In our tests, we have shown our device can last for decades without recharging, software updates or the need to wait five minutes for the satellite signal to be detected.", a company spokesman said today.
The device consists of a thin sheet of cellulose fibres, strengthened and reinforced, but the real secret behind the magic of Flat-Nav are the millions of tiny dots of ink which have been deposited on the surface of the cellulose.
Close up, this looks just like a jumble of coloured dots, but move the device further away and the magic happens - these dots form patterns, and these patterns can interact directly with the visual and cognitive centres of your brain - increasing your spatial awareness and using the unparalleled computing power of the human mind to calculate the exact route that you need to travel.
