One or more small adjustable accelerometers are worn on the body and are configured to beep upon differing degrees of jostle. The unobtrusive feedback will soon have you stealth-walking like a ninja.

       Not all their cracked up to be. Whilst dwelling in Kita-Koshigaya, the guesthouse used to get people going to the nearby ninja dojo. They were extremely visible at breakfast time.

       Would also be useful in training pickpockets.

       [not_mrm] - you mean, the ones they wanted you to see were visible

       ^ It wasn't that big a dining area..

       But did you happen to glance up at the ceiling fan above your head?

       Whenever you see a Ninja, he's a decoy.

       Yeah, they're like security cameras in banks; for every one you can see, there are 3 you can't see.

       ...and in the 7-11, ninja are very apparent. It would be a bit of an evolutionary handicap to be that invisible, as the check-out operator wouldn't know you are there...likewise waiting to see the doc in hospitals, zebra crossings et al.

       There was no ceiling fan.

       When I was learning to drive in a big 1980s Peugeot there were three lights on the dashboard, green orange and red, which were connected to the speed, gearbox and throttle, to indicate how economically you were driving. It was great training to be able to keep it on the same colour for an entire journey.   

       Also I have seen motion-sensitive LED flashers that can be attached to shoelaces. These also give useful feedback to walking too heavily.

       I am just assuming you went for the green light option.

       Mostly.
