I guess I can grudgingly approve of it as a very very preliminary start to better things, but damn what a useless POS.

Is anyone seriously going to staple that gigantic thing to their chest just to figure out which way is sorta north? I'll take a normal compass 100 times out of 100. Works better, I won't crush it while I sleep, it's cheaper, friends can use it if I'm killed or sleeping, I can easily barter with it, and has no risk of side effects.

Some years from now, when there's something much, much smaller and far more feature-rich, then maybe we can talk

No, but close! Just a few weeks ago at the HRE Open House I saw a 1933 Ford Coupe (very close to the ZZ Top car) next to a McLaren P1.

If there was an EMP, you definitely want the Coupe. That P1 was a miracle, but very dependent on the gizmos. Plus, the P1 has no room for preps.

Call me back when I can get implant for night vision or nero-vision projection.
Before that happens, I will stick with a compass.

These are the first devices.

But you have to admit it is better than this
