Social Networking Shoe

As if we’re not connected enough already (Google Latitude, anyone?), the Isaac Daniel Blue GPS shoe puts real-time geotracking into your every step. The shoe’s built-in GPS chip uses Bluetooth to send location information through your cell phone and out to a list of selected friends. The shoe also interacts with Facebook, allowing people to track your coordinates online.

You can bid your privacy adieu later this year for the low price of $150. The Blue GPS shoes are scheduled to ship first in Latin America, although U.S. pre-orders are now being accepted.

If I want an electronic monitoring device around my ankle, I’ll go commit a crime.

    Don’t get too dependent. Most of this won’t work well at Rooster Rock park.

    Wow the USB shirt is ridiculous. $222?? I could make the same exact thing for $50 or less.

    Your link on the home page goes to the Radio Shack swhuld not change it’s name page.

    Not too bad for a tech site…..

    Wait, no, fail….

    But don’t mind the slide show at all…..

    @tron… but that’s one way to make money. every time you click next, the page loads anew and the website receives a new “impression” and the ads are delivered anew… etc.
    Usability is often not the main concern of website publishers, when they have to make a living off of their site ^_^

    Um….couldn’t they make it a little more fashionable? Great idea but really, I wouldn’t want to look like a fisherman all the time.
