Designed by Korean students, Jin-Sun Park and Seon-keun Park, Maptor is a portable combination map/projector. By downloading a map to the device, a user can project maps onto various surface such as the wall, ground, or a hand.

Maptor has integrated GPS so your position on the map is marked and tracked with a big red arrow making navigating easier. It's also made from environmentally friendly biodegradable plastic PLA (polylactic acid). Thumbs up to the Parks for making this cool device green!

Maptor is a concept device, so I'm not sure when/if it will become available for purchase, what the battery life is like, or the price. I also don't know how clear the maps appear in daylight.

The Maptor certainly has nerd potential...and this travel geek wants one.
