What if you had a pair of shoes that vibrated to give you directions to your destination? Maybe it can serve as a backup if your phone dies, but then again, if it’s Bluetooth it requires your phone to be working.
Indian startup Ducere Technologies is about to let out a new form of high – tech footwear into the world, the Wall Street Journal says.
The shoes are called Lechal shoes. The Bluetooth smart footwear will sync with an app on the user’s phone, which is connected to Google Maps. Once a user types in their destination, the app will command the left and right shoes to vibrate, telling the user which way to turn to reach their destination.
“The shoes are a natural extension of the human body,” Ducere Technologies cofounder and CEO Krispian Lawrence told the WSJ.
“You will leave your house without your watch or wristband, but you will never leave your house without your shoes.”
