The advent of GPS has brought the printed map to near extinction, but Rand McNally hopes to revive traditional hand-held navigation with the fabMAP. This map is printed on microfiber, so while it can be used like a regular paper map, it can also be used to wipe an LCD screen, clear smudges off of camera lenses or clean a cell phone.

Yes, apparently it's come to that. Naturally, there's a commemorative Inaugural Day version fit for framing with President Obama's smiling grill on the reverse side of the map.
