Maptor is A Gadget That Combines Map and Projector

When you are navigating through a paper map, the most annoying and inconvenient issue you might have noticed is to unfolding and refolding it. Moreover, it is also difficult to pinpoint your exact location on a paper map. Maptor is a compact and stylish concept device that will resolve these problems in an innovative way. You can download a map on this device and it will let you project the map onto any flat surface such as wall, ground or even on your hand. Moreover, this device includes a GPS that will indicate your exact location on the map.

  1. its not that its not good, it is great, but there is no need for it. since most new cellphones have gps. even if you don’t have a phone with gps you can easily buy a cheap navi. system, or pay 200 bucks for a nokia n810 that runs Linux, and has everything you can possibly imagine, including gps, and skype :O

    only if this product is very inexpensive you will likely succeed.

    good job

  2. it’s not true that there is no need of it. when one have limited imagination of use of such product the problem is in imagination of that person.
    myself I would use it for viewing the maps on screen of my velomobile like in military jets… such nokia with linux would be very good complementary stuff in cockpit 😀

    in my opinion – great idea! and good job!

    ALL makes & plug into cars GPS Nav System.
    Cool

  4. What will happen when you are in forest, in desert or in the middle of the sea? No service provider is going to reach there. That is where this will be a useful one. I think it will be cool gadget for hunters.

  5. awesome.

    id buy one if it where really cheap. more so, you could have each item of these sold with a thorough map of the country it's being sold in – that way theres always maps and no worries abut no signal to download like mentioned.

  6. Very great innovation. Techno savvy individuals need not apply as this is not your standard cell phone with GPS nav system included. I think this is genius at work. No need to go thru apps in your phone or recharge your phone if the power is low to access GPS. Just one button and there is your location. Im more than sure this will make it to market soon.

  7. If I was planning a Military Campaign on the Enemy, I might find it Useful. But on the Individual Level, I have No Use For It. A Handheld GPS Unit would be a Better Buy…

  8. bikers don't have a lot of pockets, skate boardness, walkers, travelers , the think tank, while you sit, there is a use
    for it I want 1 too.
