Jinsun Park and Seonkeun Park of Samsung Art & Design Institute (South Korea) came up with this great gadget called the Maptor, an ingenious combination of a map and projector that (predictably) projects the desired map onto any surface.

It’s small (lipstick size) and discreet enough to look at the map and be on your way in a few seconds. (Who? Me? Lost? ... No way!) Another great feature is that Maptor has a GPS included, so when you look at the map there will be a big red arrow on the map that points to your current location.

If you are a man and you hate asking for directions (like me), this tool is just what the doctor ordered. Stats for Projecting Maps Trending: Older & Average
