Ye Olde Google Maps Navigator "Wristwatch"

Funky, futuristic wrist pieces are a dime a dozen on Gizmodo, so it's completely refreshing to see one so manually operated and backward-thinking in its design. Look closely, though. That's not the time it's giving...

It's printed directions! On a tiny scroll of paper! Is your mind blown or what?

Ah, you answered "what." I see. Clever. Anyway, the Brass Wristlet Google Maps Navigator Watch provides a hand-driven scroll that gives instructions as only a medieval pauper could appreciate - on a scroll.

Just turn the dial as you navigate your course and voila, the directions scroll effortlessly across the glass face (fashioned from a microscope slide). [Asciimation via MAKE]
