Tamtam: A Flash Light That Keeps You From Getting Lost

Navigating unfamiliar territory can be tricky, luckily in this modern age we have many devices that can assist us in getting to our destination. In car GPS navigation is great, but what if you are traveling by foot? TamTam Flash, a new concept from Designaffairs Studio, seeks to prevent walking tourists from ever getting lost again.

Designed to help tourists explore off the beaten path, the Tamtam Flash is one concept we are eager to get our hands on. This innovative pocked-sized light flashes the route info on your path to allow for quick and intuitive navigation. The way you are able to flash the correct route info on the path with this device is the perfect solution for those who have difficulty reading a map and adjusting their position while traveling by foot.

Another awesome feature of this light is its ability to project maps on any flat surface that the user can zoom and scroll like a digital map to find the right direction or path in a secluded location. It also reads QR tags which provide additional information to tourists.

We think this concept is amazing and would love to see it go into production. Not only do we want to own one, we can also think of several people that this would be the perfect for.

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?
