Seeker is a device which acts as a type of magical compass, made to invoke a sense of exploration and surprise to urban navigation. Although playful and intuitive, under its anodised aluminium shell a custom high-end system can be found, including various sensors such as GPS, accelerometer, and gyroscope, to provide a precise indication on its motorised dial-pointer and illuminated bezel.
By placing a location token at its base, wirelessly a new location is imprinted on the device’s memory. After which it will do everything within its means to lure and encourage to set your own path, giving you a destination, but leaving the discoveries along the way up to you.
