The practicality of this implant may not make sense to many, but Cyborg Nest’s "The North Sense" compass is said to be one of the first steps to better connect man with nature. Though the device is a dermal implant, it likely won’t be too long before the concept gets the subdermal treatment. For now, the rather visible external device attaches to the wearer, typically around the chest or under the collarbone, and vibrates when facing magnetic north. The “compass” is less about directing people and more about grounding an awareness of their surroundings. Wearers of The North Sense have said they’ve been left with a feeling of “profoundness” over their new sense of direction.
