    If I remember from the Keynote, there is navigation functionality planned for the :apple:Watch. Something like two vibrations, turn left, etc.

    One function I'd like to see would be a compass functionality turned on when I raised my arm directly away from body, you would then sweep your arm horizontally/circularly, and it would vibrate when you were pointing north. Alternatively, it could point you in the direction of your destination.

    Perhaps use of such a technology over time might lead to development of a heightened 'orientation sense', something these inventions are aimed at:
