GPS on smartphones and tablets is old news. It makes more sense to have GPS in your shoes, since they are taking you where you want to go. What if you could tell your shoes about your destination and they guided you to it? No more GPS on a screen.
That’s what this concept is all about. The GPS brogue shoes come from British designer, Dominic Wilcox. The idea is to upload a destination to the shoes and then help them ‘light’ the right path for you. Simply and easy. I love it.
They have a GPS sensor in the heel of the left shoe. Once you click the two heels together, the sensor is activated. You can then feed a destination to your shoes with your laptop via a USB connection. Then it will prompt the LEDs on the side of the left shoe to indicate which way you should walk.
