This is the Compass Phone, a device which both asks serious questions of the modern day cell phone and answers with an elegant alternative: itself. This project asks weather mobiles are surveillance tools, digital leashes if you will – definitely a scary thought. In a poetic manner, the Compass Phone acts as a tether to another, using its GPS function to point you in the direction of the person you wish to be near with a compass. On the top, the amount of time it’ll take you and them to meet is displayed.
