There’s No Place Like Home

Where would we be without GPS. Cars, phones, tablets and cameras use it to give direction to our travels. Now British designer Dominic Wilcox has created the world’s first GPS enhanced shoes.

Custom mapping software directs the GPS system, which is embedded in the heel and activated, of course, with a heel click. Walking directions are provided by a helpful LED light system.

Routes can be upload to the shoes via a USB connection.

The GPS shoes are not commercially available yet. But I’m sure that we all know someone who could use a pair when the go on sale.
