Computer Shoes Zap You With Feedback

There have been shoe computers before. Since the early 1980’s people have been shoving embedded computers of some sort into their shoes for mileage and step tracking. Apple & Nike have been doing this for 15 years too.

Now, started as a system to assist the blind, there are shoes that will track your location and give you “haptic” feedback (physical). Walking the wrong way? Bzzzzz. Walking into a no-pedestrian zone? Buzz. Walking away from a hacker’s pre-determined location? Buzz!!!  Running from the police? Buzz buzz buzz!!!!
