About Treblig Pampeana - The South Compass
The Treblig Pampeana: a counterculture compass that points to the South.
The Treblig is a the digital conception of a physical compass that we built and give to many politicals of Argentina, including our former President Ms. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.
It's a "normal" compass that we customized in order that the needle points to the South instead of the North.
That minimalism, as a symbolic rebelion to the cultural conditionings imposed by the "common sense", by media, tradition, education, religion.. culture in general.
It's a concept developed by Lic. Leonardo Toselli of Empoderados
As a add-on, this digital Treblig Pampeana shows in the bottom third many phrases of different authors, that inspire the reflection about the dominant system of thought.
Every phrase, downloaded randomly from our server, can be read by the device synthesized speech, if desired.
Note: Treblig = Gilbert backwards. William Gilbert was a pioneer in earth magnetism study.
- Your device *must have* a orientation sensor to the compass to work. If not, the needle will not move.
- To calibrate te compass, wave the phone in a figure eight motion. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP3d00Hr14o
