Squeeze Your Way Across Town With the 'Egg Map'

This rubberized guide doesn’t require folding or Wi-Fi, just a firm grip.

For the urban explorer with stress issues comes the Egg Map, a squishy ball you squeeze the heck out of to reveal roads, districts, and destinations.

The blobby oddity is a concept from Dénes Sátor, who appears to have designed only one model for his native Budapest. Still, if you ever find yourself lost in that charming city, the Egg Map is the clear way to go. It doesn’t require irksome folding like a paper map, and because its inert, rubberized body cannot connect to the Internet, hunting for wi-fi is a non-issue. Simply crush the ball to enlarge different parts of town, and plot a route while people stare at you for fondling what could be a freaky alien artifact.
