This electronic exo-sense developed by The Cyborg Nest is called "The North Sense" and vibrates as its wearer faces magnetic north, thus connecting it to the electromagnetic field of the earth.

In spite of its apparent simplicity, it should not be confused with a compass, it is not a tool but rather a sixth sense that delivers an uninterrupted flow of information to the brain, adding a new sensory layer to the perception and the experience of reality.

This is called MINDWARE® by The Cyborg Nest and it is a disruptive approach to human cognitive enhancement, the evolution of the human mind.

Alan shares the reasons for his body modification to exploit the incredible potential of biological intelligence. It also analyzes the characteristics of the emerging market of consumer cybernetics.
