Device Introduced To Find Nearest Pub

A device has been introduced by two entrepreneurs in London that
directs a person to the nearest pub.  This device is a computer
that is attached to the wrist of a person and it then directs
the individual to the nearest pub.  The device which has been
named "eSleeve" uses satellite positioning to locate where the
person is and then locates the four nearest pubs to the person.
It can also recognize the users voice and if they happen to get
drunk can aid them in finding their way home.


Developed by two Bristol University professors, the eSleeve is a 16-bit wearable computer that connects to a GPS device via a serial port and guides the wearer to the nearest tavern. And if you have too much to drink at the bar, the eSleeve will also guide you back home.
