The Cricket travel guide is a conceptual gadget designed to turn tourists into travelers. Cricket is a social sharing gadget that lets you suggest and share places to visit around the world.

The Cricket travel guide is a wrist-worn device that works via vibration. When you are near a suggested location the device will vibrate. You can then use the Cricket compass to help guide you in the right direction. Locations or "Paths" can be uploaded and shared online for free or for a fee. You can also customize the types of updates you want to receive by setting filters. Discovering a new city can be difficult without good suggestions and even better directions. The Cricket travel guide would bring both the suggestions and the directions, adding a new and social dimension to travel. Stats for Wrist-Worn Guidebooks Trending: Older & Mild
