Directional interfaces...idea #61/100...

With a digital compass capability, it seems a useful idea to display geographically sensitive data on a mobile according to the direction it is pointing. If I point the device North, then I get the nearest fish-and-chip shop going North. Turning 180 degrees, I get the nearest fish-and-chip shop going South, or whatever else is of interest in a Southerly direction (for those that don't want fish and chips).
