Blindfolded Giant Slalom Ski Racing

On February 18, 2024, Vice-President Theresa and I made history.

Using distributed cognition in constant communication, I was able to blindfolded ski through an invisible downhill giant slalom course with static (jumps) and dynamic (skiers) obstacles. The course was set with the Luna Navigator, and skied using our patent-pending Neo-Luna Navigation & Game Metasystem, as a demonstration for tactical distributed cognition.

Here are two of our numerous races—every run was successful.

We are looking forward to competing next winter. Any challengers?

Cyborg Golfing Hartland Businesses

Yesterday, Vice-President Theresa and I developed the Cyborg Golfing Game for Businesses. Here is my first round of play & scorecard (the images count as the scorecard).

Summary of scores: I skipped the first hole, so that’s a Bogey (0 points). Then I Eagled at Birch & Banyan and the US Post Office for 3 points each. The remaining 7 holes were Birdies for 2 points each.

Total Score: 20 Points For The First Cyborg Golf Game Ever Played.

Launch Luna!

Greetings Future Cyborgs

Welcome to the Neo-Luna Metasystem transition portal, where mortals become superhuman.

I am Dr. Kallie, the Founder and President of Global Tactile. This week, we will discuss a detailed guide on how to use the Neo-Luna Navigation & Game System. Furthermore, we will cover the various licensing tiers associated with the Neo-Luna Navigation & Game System. Our agenda also includes a session on optimization tips for peak cybernetic performance — through at-home learning, backyard training, and wilderness gaming.

Borg Up Yourself

Additionally, we shall examine the all-new User Manual for the newly updated Luna Navigator App, version 1.0.0. We will also explore the super-human capabilities of the high-performance force-feedback Neo Controller, delve into the intricacies of Neo-Luna Games, and discuss the asynchronous competitive Neo-Luna Racing Metasystem.

Game Reality

So, if you are a Strong, Wild, and Free American, and you wish to become superhuman, then download the Luna App (free in America!), and take notes as you prepare yourself for the Ultimate Cyborg Reality with the Neo-Luna Cybernetic Metasystem — Exclusively from Global Tactile — GlobalTactile.com!

Be Super, Human

Software App & iPhone Settings

Step 1: download Luna Navigator from App Store.

Step 2: adjust your iPhone’s Compass settings for optimal cybernetic performance. For best performance of the Luna Navigator, use the following settings on your iPhone:

Essential iPhone Compass Settings:

  • Turn On — Precise Location
  • Turn On — Use True North

Highly recommended iPhone Settings for extended navigation and gaming performance:

  • Turn Off — Auto Lock
  • Turn Off — Auto-Brightness
  • Turn Off — Orientation Lock

Optional iPhone Settings: If you are blind or visually impaired, the Luna Navigator works great with VoiceOver. If you are normally sighted, and use your iPhone visually, we recommend that you do not turn on VoiceOver, unless you want to make your iPhone’s interface to behave unpredictably. VoiceOver requires training to use effectively. If you are proficient in using VoiceOver, you may follow this Guide using VoiceOver.

Congratulations! Now that you have the essential and recommended settings, your Luna Navigator will be ready for Cybernetic Racing & Games!

Quick-Start: Using the Luna Navigator

For super-fast and super-human Navigation, Cybernetic Racing, & Games, the Luna Navigator is super high performance, all within your pocket. Here’s how to operate Luna for best results:

Luna Navigator Properties

Luna Display

The Luna display features colored text over a black background for maintaining visual adaptation to the environment and battery conservation. Plus Luna is designed to send feedback signals to the Neo Controller, which eliminates retinal screen fatigue and further extends the battery life of your iPhone while navigating.

Luna displays only essential information for position and navigation, and is specifically designed to keep your eyes adapted to your environment instead of a bright screen — providing a tactical visual advantage in perceptually-challenging environments and circumstances.

Luna Inputs

Map Button & Route Selector

The Map button allows you to load personal and shared maps using the built-in iOS file system. The Route Selector allows you to scroll through and select routes from the currently loaded map. 

Luna Outputs

Attitude: Heading, Latitude & Longitude

The Attitude Properties (Heading, Latitude & Longitude) show the iPhone’s current location and orientation relative to the Globe. Heading updates at 10 Hz, and Coordinates (Latitude & Longitude) update at 1 Hz.

Navigation: Pointer, Distance & Bearing

The Navigation Properties (Pointer, Distance & Bearing) report the current shortest (geodesic) path to the next waypoint. Pointer shows the iPhone’s angle relative to the next waypoint in degrees (i.e., Bearing minus Heading, -180 to +180 degrees). Pointer and Bearing are shown in degrees, and Distance is shown in meters. Angles are updated at 10 Hz, and Distance updates at 1 Hz.

Vibration: On-Point

Luna vibrates On-Point (±3 Degrees) for classic/traditional/compact/discreet assisted navigation without the optional Neo Controller. Since Luna uses built-in vibration, the user receives 100 samples per minute (equal to 1.67 Hz) vibration-feedback with Luna alone. When the optional Neo Controller is switched on, Luna stops vibrating-on-point, and Neo provides super-fast and enhanced feedback to the user.

Luna Navigator 1.0.0

Subtitle: Cybernetic Racing & Games

Category: Navigation, Games (Action & Racing)

Description

Introducing the next-generation Neo-Luna Navigation & Game System by Global Tactile, LLC.

The Luna Navigator is designed for global, asynchronous, tactical gaming and racing. It is an intuitive, fast, and precise navigation and gaming application specifically tailored for iPhone users. When combined with the patent-pending force-feedback Neo Controller, the Luna Navigator provides exceptionally fast and high-performance sightless tactical navigation through Neo’s Tactile Reticle. The innovative Neo Controller enables navigation and control through a pair of tactile lines that users can perceive through touch or sight. This pioneering design allows for dynamic sightless navigation through force-feedback control.

Every tactical navigator knows how hard it can be to use a bright screen in the dark during sensitive missions. The Neo-Luna Navigation System is made to help with that. It lets users keep their vision sharp for the mission while still navigating well. This tool works great, and you can use it with or without looking at a screen. It gives smooth guidance for routes, whether you’re working alone or with others on maps, games, or missions.

The Luna app is versatile and works well with or without the Neo Controller. When used alone, Luna provides a simple and efficient text and vibration-based navigation system suitable for sighted, visually impaired, and tactical navigators. It can be carried, worn, or mounted in vehicles, offering hands-on or hands-free navigation options through sight or touch. When paired with the optional Neo Controller, Luna seamlessly works with Neo to provide superior touch-based navigation through Neo’s unique Tactile Reticle.

The Luna App and Neo Controller work well together in tough conditions. They can be used hands-on, even with protective clothing like pants, jackets, and gloves. They can also be used as a hands-free or body-worn system, or mounted for on-the-spot reference using sight, sound, or touch. The Neo-Luna Navigation System provides a strong, multi-purpose navigation experience, meeting users’ needs anytime and anywhere, all in one innovative package.

Features & Functions

What’s New In This Version

Anticipator

The recently introduced Anticipator function incorporates a variety of new features and benefits. For pedestrian and high-accuracy navigation through courses, choose a smaller number (e.g., Default = 4 meters). For anchoring to a location, choose 0. And for high-speed navigation through courses (e.g., on vehicles and vessels)

Magnification

Magnification Stepper allows finer and coarser response between Luna’s and Neo’s Rotation. Default = 2 (same as Luna 0.1), ranges between 1 and 4.

Trim

Trim can be adjusted to accommodate new or modified tactile interfaces if software calibration is unavailable.

Tracking

Luna 1.0 now featuring new and improved biometric tracking to keep you moving straighter and faster through tactical maneuvers and racing corses. Tracking mode is now displayed to allow easy and positive switching between Geometric tracking (recommended for vehicles & vessels) and Biometric tracking (for handheld and body-worn use).

Incognito

The all-new Incognito switch allows stealth navigation and asynchronous and distributed location competitions.

Route

Route information is now displayed for each selected route.

Waypoint

Waypoint information is now displayed for each waypoint during navigation, allowing dynamic updating of the present course.
