Discussion: Time to expand frisking at the start
in: Orienteering; Gear & Toys;
Forget the question, "is that a Garmin in your pocket or ...?" Prudent meet directors had better start making sure that cheating competitors are not hiding this device
under their gaiters!
"it has been shown that most wearers gain a new sense of absolute direction, giving them a superhuman ability
to navigate their surroundings"
I've always been hoping someone would invent a device that points towards magnetic north.
This topic must be 72 days late.
Seriously though, who would spend this much on something that's easily going get smashed mere minutes into its maiden voyage? I have enough trouble not wrecking my watch, and that's on my wrist.
It is illegal unless covered with tape.
In some classes there might be more attraction to wearing it in a more intimate location, to avoid the risk of frisking of course.
- build the unit into ankle braces
- run in circles to get a massage while competing
- for night orienteering wear it around the head, with lights to act like an artificial sun
- magnetize a needle, stick it in a cork, carry it around in a bowl of water
Looks like the sort of device that would also be able to detect the wearer's blood alcohol content and/or whether they have moved from their place of house arrest...

Just look for the woman in a high state of excitement.
I was trying to be subtle tRicky. I had images of dance moves that included much spinning.
Rule 21.3 does not define "compass".
This thing is still, at its heart, just a compass, right? We're used to the user interface to a compass being visual, but what's the big deal if uses some other senses? Maybe one that gives you a funny taste in your mouth depending on which direction you're facing.
(On the other hand, a compass that has only three bits of output resolution isn't going to be very useful for precision bearings...)
Sometimes tRicky's comments leave a nasty taste in my mouth - and I'm compelled to turn away. Must be a similar principle you're thinking of?
Does turning away from a comment you've just read help in any way?
I reckon you two are poles apart.
I don't think either one of them is. They don't have names like Stanley Waszilewski or anything like that.
Ah, more polished humour!
You might want to Czech Tooms' background to see where he's really from.
JJ these guys have got a funny taste device. Or have you already checked out the Trans-lingual Electric Nerve Stimulator?
