Looking for article: sixth sense through "vibrating belt" [solved]

I swear I read about this originally on PA, but now I can't find it anywhere.

I'm looking for an article online (and not the actual Journal of Neural Engineering article, because I don't want to pay for it) about the guy who wore a belt for six weeks that would point north by vibrating slightly. The article talked about how the guy began to naturally "feel" where he was in relation to his house, his work, etc., and the vibrating sensation essentially became invisible unless he was actively trying to feel it.

Anyone here familiar with what I'm talking about?

Edit: Thanks Seasleepy!

    It was amusing to have Massachusetts as part of our country, but now, of course, like so much of the coastal nation, it no longer qualifies as America.

    I've got to say, that's pretty damn cool.
