WHAT IS?


COMPASS STONE
It’s a simple palm-sized navigation device.
It guides you with its design like a glowing stone.

*This is a concept model and is not available for sale. .

Once you set your destination using the dedicated smartphone app, the device’s built-in LED light will keep pointing to your destination.
All you have to do is to put your smartphone in your bag, glance at the device from time to time, and go in that direction to reach your destination while enjoying the scenery without feeling anxious. (Patented system and device)

CONCEPT

〜We want to cherish the experience.

The experience of visiting a place for the first time is a very important moment and memory that you will only have once in your life.

However, when you try to visit a place for the first time using a map application, it is not uncommon to find yourself looking at your phone and not remembering anything about the route or the surrounding scenery. It is also easy to become a walking smoker, which has become a social problem in recent years. We thought it would be a shame to miss out on the impressive scenery and valuable experiences that we would have otherwise witnessed.
With COMPASS STONE, you will be able to explore in a different way than with map apps.
Instead of looking down at the screen all the time, you can look up and enjoy the world around you. The design also fits perfectly in your hand, creating a sense of excitement.

The COMPASS STONE will turn various trips into adventures with you.

— Perhaps, just around the next corner, you will have a chance encounter that will stay with you for a lifetime.
〜Why stones?
Stones have a mysterious appeal. They have existed on the earth since ancient times and have been the object of various beliefs.

In Japanese mythology, the Yatagarasu is said to have guided Emperor Jinmu on his way. It is said that after he had completed his task, he transformed himself into a bird stone.

We thought we could create an even more wonderful experience by incorporating the mystique of the stone and the feeling of being comfortable in the hand.
