This vibrating jacket from Wearable Experiments has GPS technology incorporated into the garment to help guide wearers through the city of lights. From Australian startup Wearable:Experiments, the Navigate Paris line is pre-programmed with a detailed city map and vibration-based haptic feedback.

The location-enabled outerwear can not only help you find your way through the streets of Paris, it also connects to your smartphone. The Wearable Experiments Navigate app allows you to input your destination and then put your phone away. This means you won't have to constantly be checking a map to know where you're going, as the technologically advanced apparel will take over. For example, a slight vibration in the right arm says to veer right where as a strong vibration would indicate a hard turn.
