- German scientists at the University of Hannover have developed the first human satellite navigation which will guide the elderly home, fire-fighters through burning buildings, help tourists navigate strange cities and people on dates to find their partner.
- The solution controls leg muscles via tiny electric currents to stimulate the sartorius two-joint muscle, which runs from the inside of the knee to the top of the outer thigh. The sensor is able to quickly direct the user to go right or left without the need to stop walking.
- Scientists are already working on the next stage of the project, which will enable users to hook up the device to GPS so a destination could be programmed in.
