I suppose it was just a matter of time. Your car has GPS to tell you where to go, some bikes do these
days and pretty much every cell phone. So why shouldn’t your shoes come equipped with navigation as well?

A start-up in India is working on a pair of GPS-enabled “smart” shoes that vibrate to give the wearer directions.

The shoes come with a detachable Bluetooth transceiver that links to a smartphone app to direct the wearer using Google maps, sending a vibrating signal to indicate a left or right turn.

The shoes also count the number of steps taken, distance traveled and calories burned.

Here’s when they’ll be available.
