British designer Dominic Wilcox “No Place Like Home” shoes were inspired by Dorothy’s ruby slippers. Utilizing Global Positioning Sensors (GPS) and tracking devices, the shoes can be programmed with a specific route. The wearer is then guided by LED lights that flash to indicate the right direction. There’s an antenna on the heel tracks a satellite signal to plot the route. Wilcox says: “After uploading your required destination to the shoes via a piece of custom made mapping software and a USB cable, the GPS, which is embedded in the heel, is activated by a heel click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination.” Continue reading for more strange things that actually exist.
