At last - the Twittering shoe!
This is. It’s the tweeting Twitter shoe, or the Rambler to give it its correct name.
The innovative little devils who came up with it explain…
“Everyone that uses the microblog service notice the massive amount of useless information that is spread over there. This project intent to criticize this by posting literally every step you take in real life.
A sensor embedded under the sole detects when the wearer is walking. This information is sent via blooetooth to a mobile phone that makes the postings on Twitter. When the sensor detects a certain amount of pressure, the word “step” is posted. For the other moments the “.” symbol is posted.
Following these postings one can know if the wearer is walking or not and also predict his speed.”
Blooetooth eh? Cool. Sadly, it looks as though the Rambler isn’t going to catch on – since it started tweeting on January 8th, it has amassed the fairly poxy total of just 100 followers. In fact, the shoes haven’t even tweeted since January 9th.
Has someone nicked the Rambler shoes? They have? Good.
