The world's first-ever SmartShoe is called Le Chal, which means "let's go" in Hindi. Designed by Anirudh Sharma, these shoes work as touch-sensing navigation devices that connect to your smartphone.
The basic idea is pretty simple. You tell your smartphone where to go using the app's voice recognition software, and the app uses GPS to plot the course from your current location. Once you're on your way, the shoes vibrate when it's time to turn—on the left side for a left turn and on the right for a right turn. The vibrations become more intense as you get closer to your destination.
The shoes also work as a pedometer and help you measure the number of calories burned on your trip. And, at $40 to $50 for the visually impaired, they're cheaper than a pair of Nikes. They'll cost $100 for the rest of us eye-seeing people.
