GPS Shoes - There's No Place Like Home

24 September 2012, 06:00

Now imagine if three clicks of your heels really could take you home - just like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, well that's what one designer working for a Northamptonshire project's created.

British Designer Dominic Wilcox has teamed up with Northamptonshire based arts project Global Footprints to celebrate the counties boot and shoe industry.

He has created a pair of shoes inspired by Dorothy's ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz, which use GPS to guide the wearer to their required destination.

After uploading a destination to the shoes through a computer and USB cable, a GPS sensor embedded within the left shoe is activated by a heel click.

A circle of brogue perforations have LEDs that light up and indicate which direction the wearer should take.

The right shoe indicates which direction the wearer should take.
