The GPS Brogues that Guide You Home

By

17th Sep, 2012

When I was a kid, I played Dorothy in a school play of The Wizard of Oz, so I like to think I know a thing or two about clicking my heels to get home … which is exactly what this pair of brogues do! Using GPS technology, British designer Dominic Wilcox designed these prototype shoes that activate its custom mapping software by clicking the heels together. The shoe gives directions with its LED lights at the tip of the left shoe and the right shoe indicated when the wearer has reached their destination. Choose your destination before going out via USB and it’s as simple as that. Not only is the idea brilliant but the design of the shoe is also bang on-trend– when you think of a GPS shoe prototype, you expect it to be really, really ugly.

Take a look at Dominic’s video as part of the London Design Festival 2012.
