Welcome to a computer on your feet. Verb For Shoe adjusts itself based on
embedded sensors. Stand next to someone else wearing Verb For Shoe and
pass and your e-Business Card info via wireless technology (Verb for Shoe)
Until recently, the idea of technology and footwear has been relegated to the design aspects. Some designs have embarked on computer aided laser etching, and certainly the design of soles has changed dramatically over the past 20-30 years with the use of computer-aided design.
The shoe you see above may be the future of footwear. Named Verb for Shoe, it has an on-board computer system that senses your movement and adjusts bladders on-the-fly for comfort.
To add to that, it's a social networking device. Stand near to someone else wearing a pair of Verb for Shoe and pass along e-Business Card information via wireless transmission.
Cost? A cool $700.00
