Flexible Map

Flexible Map is a new type of map with zoom function, using materials with good flexibility such as Emulsion, and its manufacturing methods similar to the balloon.
In the normal state, the map shows major roads, facilities, landmark buildings and other important information. Using properties of the materials, you can zoom in the map by pulling it to show more information clearly that originally printed small, such as trails, stations, etc.
The design solved the problems that the layout size of map is too large and inconvenient to use, while this material makes the map hard to damage and cleaning becomes available.
