Our cars, homes, and even clothes are getting smarter. Still, most of us probably don’t need a GPS shoe. Le Chal happens to be more than just that. It is a smartshoe made for visually-impaired individuals. This is essentially a shoe with a smartphone app and a navigation device. The companion app allows you to enter your destination and its details, so it can convert them into commands for the shoes. You get vibration feedback when it is time to turn. For instance, if you have to turn left, the left side of both shoes will vibrate.
This may not sound revolutionary to regular folks, but it could be very useful for the blind and visually impaired individuals. We are surely going to get even smarter shoes in the future. For now, ideas like this can help a lot of folks live a more comfortable life.[source]
