Art. Lebedev Navigarius GPS Device

Art. Lebedev Navigarius GPS Device Concept

Russian Art. Lebedev Studio (you know, the company behind the Optimus Maximus and Optimus Tactus keyboards, speakers shaped as speaker icons and so on) returns with another impressive concept; the Navigarius GPS Device. It doesn’t promise features not available in other windshield mounted GPS devices, but it is round and that’s enough for me, I want it.

As far as I can tell there’s no word on when (or even if) this thing will go into production, but let’s hope it does soon.

  • No no, it’s perfectly understandable. Preservation of “cool” factor is obviously an important part of the Art Lebedev business, so they reinvent square things and make them round (or vice versa) until they become the norm, and then reverse, rinse, repeat!

    I can see a future Engadget article like this:

    We can only imagine that at least a few staffers over at Art Lebedev Studios get paid to do nothing but conjure up ideas, because this one is just marvelous. And marvelously simple, but that’s beside the point. The Navisquarius GPS concept improves upon a newly archaic design that relies on spherical fixtures when there’s really no need. Lebedev’s team asserts that using square GPS displays backed with bright backlight would make better use of the available space and provide a more noticeable signal to drowsy motorists. The roar of “why didn’t I think of that?” being simultaneously stated is downright deafening.

  • It doesn’t promise features not available in other windshield mounted GPS devices.

  • Cute appearance, but not easy to take when you drive.
