Always Know Where Magnetic North is with the North Paw Directional Anklet Kit

The North Paw Directional Anklet is a device that you attach to your ankle. Its only purpose in life is to vibrate when you are facing north.

As the “kit” part of the name suggests, it actually comes in kit form and requires that you do a bit of soldering and general assembly to get it working.


The device can be set to use 1 of 8 vibration patterns and from what ThinkGeek say, after a while you forget the vibration and just instinctively know where magnetic north always is. Why you need to know that… I don’t know (unless you go hiking and regularly use a map of course).

Take a look at the video below to see it in action. The kit can be purchased from ThinkGeek and costs $159.99.
