London product design consultancy Therefore has designed an in-car satellite navigation system for travel products group Tom Tom, called the Tom Tom Go. Encompassing a 3.5-inch touch-screen 3D display with illuminated maps and a stereo voice-guidance system, the product uses Global Positioning System technology to pinpoint the driver’s location. Users punch in their destination to the device, which sits on the car dashboard, and it plots the route. Tom Tom Go is powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts up to five hours.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
