Shoes That Guide You

September 3, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

Annie Banerji wrote about a startup that’s manufacturing shoes which automatically guide you:

  • The shoes link to the wearer’s smartphone and guide them on their intended route, using the phone’s map app. If they should turn then the shoe will vibrate letting them know which way to go.
  • The shoes also monitor number of steps taken, distance travelled, and calories burned.
  • The forgetful will appreciate that it vibrates anytime their phone is too far away – indicating that the user has left it behind.
  • The shoes will cost around $125.
