In a world where every object we use is getting more and more ‘smart’ why should shoes be left behind.
An Indian company called Lechal has created sneakers and insoles that pair with an app and Google Maps to help you get from place to place.
Connected to your smartphone through bluetooth all you need to do is feed your destination in the phone. Then as you walk your left or right shoe vibrates to show you which way to turn.
You can either wear the sneakers, which come in red or black, or put the insoles in shoes you already have.
There is more to this shoe. It don’t just tell you where to go but also serves as a pedometer and a calorie tracker.
They are compatible with iPhones, Android and Windows phones.
Shoes are “a natural extension of the human body,” the company’s co-founder and CEO, Krisp-ian Lawrence, told the Wall Street Journal.
You’d never forget to wear shoes, the way you might forget your phone or wallet at home, he said.
