    Default Smart shoes vibrate to show you in the right direction

    Wearable technology will be the futur to help you get around without being hunched over your smartphone. Google Glass and smartwatches have already started , but you're still staring at a screen instead of enjoying the scenery. That's all set to change thanks to an Indian company that wants to put navigation equipment in your shoes. The Lechal interactive haptic footwear hooks up to your smartphone and when you reach a junction, vibrates the left (or right) foot depending on which turn you need to make. The gear is expected to launch in September, and you'll be able to choose between full shoes or just insoles that'll fit inside your regular pair of kicks. You can register your interest on Ducere's website right now, and can expect to pay $150 for a pair --

    Very interesting reading
    BUT
    I've had a pair for years and it doesn't matter how drunk I get my special navigational shoes always seem to find my way home.
