Experts at Bristol University have designed a computerised solution for revellers that want to find the quickest stumble to the pub.
The HandPC mini computer is a watch that gives information on the nearest hostelry by connecting to a global positioning satellite.
The designers' aim is to develop a cyber-jacket that will guide tourists around the city, but the early testing, like most things, is being carried out in local pubs.
The watch can give details on the appropriateness of individual premises and, for the highly intoxicated, will even tell them in which direction to walk.
For those that are on the wagon after a heavy Christmas and New Year, the device can provide a pub-free route home from the office.
