Do you know what the most frustrating thing about a compass is? It ONLY points North. But what if a compass could point to something....more appetizing? WIRED has challenged maker Joe Grand to figure out how to make a compass that points to pizza, in just three weeks.

I have to tell you, I was initially hoping this would track pizza at close proximity based on smell or something like that. Now that would be awesome if possible.

Am I the only one confused about how he was able to connect the gps with the led ring by using that code line: private: pizza T *ptr; int size; public: pizza Array(T arr[], int s); void print(); }; template Array::Array(T arr[], int s) { ptr = new pizza T[s]; size = s; for(int i = 0; i < size; i++) ptr[i] = arr[i];

just saying you hid your gps coordinates but quick google search shows where that pizza place is (when you tested it in the prototype) and since its supposed to be the closest and there are other pizza shops near by its pretty easy to figure out a pretty small area you could be in. sorry just a warning some times people can find things out even with minor data

Something like this could be great for an escape room or pre-planned scavenger hunt, would just need to switch the backend to something that gives then next location if the player hits the "hint" button.

Have it point to resources for people that don't have access to smartphones (but can still access some wall outlets). Perhaps shelters or soup kitchens for homeless? 🤷‍♂️I assume it has less battery consumption.
