For a while, novelty celebrity voiceovers were all the rage when it came to GPS navigation units. But the Sunshine Aquarium in Tokyo has come up with a far more adorable way to get to your destination: by following a muster of virtual waddling penguins.


Penguin NAVI allows tourists to find their way from anywhere in Tokyo to the aquarium, but instead of a line on a map they're chauffeured around town by a group of computer generated penguins generated using motion capture data from their real-life counterparts. It may not be the quickest way to get from point A to point B, but who wouldn't love a bunch of tiny tuxedo'd butlers guiding them around town? [Sunshine Aquarium via Taxi]
