GPS Enables Shoes Light The Way To Your Destination

gps-shoes-1.jpg

This is a pair of GPS enabled shoes that light the way to your predetermined destination. The toe of the left shoe lights up which direction you need to head in, and the right toe what percentage of your journey is left. They were created by Dominic Wilcox, who calls them No Place Like Home. That's a Wizard of Oz reference. Plus you have to tap the heels together to turn them on. That makes TWO Wizard of Oz references! Can we make it three? "If you only had a brain." WHAT THE F*** IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?

Thanks to PYY, who agrees the easiest way to find your home is listening for you mother yelling, "TIME FOR DINNER! IT'S NOW OR NEVER YOU LITTLE SHITS."

There are Comments.
  • That is quite a unique idea..

  • Now this is what i call technology..

  • Wandering around looking at your feet all the time. That can only end well.

  • Believe it or not, the concept has an application for the elderly. Those who qualify under the Diabetic Shoe Act and have dementia can have the shoes made with a GPS device so that if they wander, the shoes give guidance back home. Another version will eventually have a tracking system in them.

    I guess with all the compasses, maps, smartphones, sundials and moss growing on the north side of a tree, I am not surprised that everyone up to this point in time was lost in their daily travel and obviously needed GPS shoes to successfully get them to their destinations.

  • That moss thing isn't true.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    yes I know....but was I was going for a joke and that is all I could come up with at the time.

  • I get lost at home.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    shoes won't help with that...AA maybe...but not shoes

  • Phillip Gockel

    They need more ruby red.

    well consider Dorothy's outfit: blue dress with an accent of red shoes. this shoe is following that.
