GPS Flashlight Gets You Home While Inviting the Neighborhood

The Tamtam Flash from DesignAffairs Studio makes it easy to find your way, projecting directions on any flat surface such as the sidewalk.

A lot of  tourists travel to Paris, London, Madrid or New York every end of the week in order to capture the main attractions with their cameras. But what is the purpose of those trips? Is it all about the “been there, done that” or is there more about getting to know a location? To really experience a place, one has to travel off the beaten track in order to come across things that are typical for that place.

The Tamtam Flash from DesignAffairs Studio makes it easy to find your way, projecting directions on any flat surface such as the sidewalk. It can also project a zoomable and scrollable map on any wall, giving you an overall perspective on wherever you happen to be. More over, the Tamtam Flash can read QR codes to give you additional information about any location that might use them.

According to the DesignAffairs Studio the Tamtam Flash is aimed at tourists walking in an unfamiliar city, giving them the confidence to explore on their own, secure in the knowledge that they can always find their way back to the hotel.

Dear readers, what do you think? Would you purchase the Tamtam Flash should it go into production? Is this a better way to navigate than by iPhone or Google Maps printouts? [DesignAffairs via Unplggd]
