'Egg Map' is a rubber ball guiding you through the city no matter what
These days navigation is almost exclusively gadget-based so much so that the youngest generations probably have never even touched a paper-based map. There is no doubt that google maps & co make our lives easier, however they are not always convenient: low batteries, lack of wifi, weak gps signal can leave you lost in the city forever. Paper maps can always be backed, but they are often a pain to use as they tear and wear like nothing else. Here comes young Hungarian designer Dénes Sátor, who came up with a brilliantly simple yet innovative alternative to both.
The Egg Map is a 100% offline, physical rubber ball, printed with a city map. It works on the basis of manual zooming, meaning that details of the districts become visible when squeezed. This way, the ball could be kept at a convenient size, that fits comfortably in an average human hand, while it is capable of holding all necessary information. The ball is filled with air meaning that it is extremely light and can be thrown into any tourist bag, and the rubber material withstands even the most severe weather conditions. Sátor, who is in his last year of university, managed to create an object that is novel, extremely fun, and first and foremost, utterly functional.
