A walking stick fitted with GPS navigation features, health monitoring sensors and Bluetooth and wireless connectivity.

Clearly aimed at the elderly, or anyone with walking difficulties, this prototype from Japan's Fujitsu is a stick fitted with GPS navigation features, health monitoring sensors and Bluetooth and wireless connectivity.

The stick, known as Generation, allows relatives, carers or perhaps medics to track the user's real time movements while also recording heart rate.

The stick also has the potential to summon emergency services, CNN reported.

While the stick is some way off launch, Fujitsu has clearly been putting a great deal of thought about how its technology can benefit senior citizens - a shrewd move given Japan's aging population.

It has also created a phone specifically aimed at the elderly, featuring a large keypad and sound enhancement.
