Few who have had a taste of what global positioning systems can do are then able to live without them, but you'll be filled with a sense of pride to own an Eva GPS system specifically.

The clever palm-sized device boasts all of the capabilities that a cutting edge personal navigator should be able perform, but this one's environmentally responsible attitude is enough to truly set it apart. Eva may be able to map and guide you across civilization's scars on the earth, but its manufacturing owes no such apologies.

First of all, designer Alain Monteiro engineered the handheld apparatus so that it's powered entirely by means of built-in solar panels. The gadget's egg-shaped case is made from biodegradable softwood pulp, and its touchscreen has e-paper technology to thank.
