IXO / Outdoor Urban Navigator

IXO is designed for use when the elderly user is lost momentarily or requires information about the surroundings at that point in time. It is able to guide the user (on foot) to a selected destination within walking distance of his/her current location.

The top 3 buttons have embedded LEDs that will light up/down according to their availability for selection. This minimises confusion of button choice for the elderly user.

A secondary phone feature is incorporated and is activated with the removal of the wireless earpiece.

A \'mechanical feedback\' scrollwheel is situated on the right for menu selection.
