I wouldn't be surprised if this ingenious new map design told traditional maps to get lost!

Finally, a functional map has found its place in the world. Emanuele Pizzolorusso is the designer of these go-to guides, dubbed the Crumpled City Maps, which are already available in a number of popular travel destinations. What makes these maps far superior to traditional maps is their construction; instead of paper, they are made out of a weightless, waterproof material. This means that they can be crumpled, stuffed and stored into any shape, and all in a matter of seconds. No more water-wrecked or ripped paper maps -- these foldable guides will guide you home, while weathering the weather.

Traditional paper maps are terrible and tearable. Need a reliable guide? Crumpled City Maps will guide you around the world.
