LED Shoes Guide You To Your Destination

Just a few weeks back, we mentioned that Google released its Google Talking Shoes at SXSW. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for us, these were not for sale. This week, we discovered new shoes. Believe it or not, these shoes guide you to where you want to go. Just connect the shoe via a USB cable to your laptop, plot where you want to go on the map, press “upload to shoe,” click your heels three times and the GPS is activated.
