For travelers who find continuously refering to their handheld device for directions annoying, the Triposo Travel Belt will help. This device pairs directly with your smartphone applications to keep you wandering in the right direction.

The Triposo Travel Belt communicates directly with an app through a wired connection, which plugs directly into the headphone jack of your device. After choosing a destination on your smartphone, the app then pushes sounds through your headphone jack connection, which then activates four vibrating motors on your belt (forward, backward, left and right), to direct you toward your specific orientation. The belt itself then vibrates according to the direction you need to start heading.

While the device is still in production, Triposo is offering introductory prices of $50, which will pretty much guarantee the belt on your waist by early 2014.
