GPS Shoes by Dominic Wilcox

There is no place like home, especially when you’re walking there in a pair of GPS Shoes. Inspired by Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, Dominic Wilcox has created a fully functional prototype pair of shoes that will guide you home no matter where you are in the world. Equipped with LED lighting and a GPS system, the shoes are activated by clicking the heels (Dorothy style) when the destination is uploaded through a USB cable and mapping software. In the shoes there is a progress bar with one red light at the beginning of the journey and it ends on the green light when you arrive. The correct direction to walk is shown by the illumination of one of the LEDs on the circle.

About the author

Though residing in the renowned tourist spot of fancy lights and buildings, Las Vegas, should be interesting, Demi knows it’s just another ordinary home with frustrating, forever-shifting weather. Meanwhile, she tries to find a caprice of clear senses. She might blog about it all at DesignCube or simply rest her eyes within the phosphenes.
