If you liked the idea of tweeting with your feet, then you’ll really want to add this pair of leather kicks to your wardrobe.
The GPS-enabled footwear, lovingly dubbed the “No Place Like Home GPS Shoes,” even have a red sole as an homage to the Wizard of Oz’s leading lady Dorothy. The fully functioning prototype guides users to their destination with a ring of mini LED lights on the left toe. The lights point to the correct direction while the right shoe displays a progress bar.
Before embarking on a journey, upload the destination via USB to the custom mapping software, lace them up, then click the heels to get the directions going. Learn more about how the shoe works on designer Dominic Wilcox’s website.
