GPS Shoes Will Get You To Your Destination

Finding your way home is relatively easy for everyone. But it can be an entirely different thing when it comes to finding the way just about anywhere else. For people who have such problems with location and finding them, this GPS shoes may someday be quite useful.

The GPS Shoes is actually a design concept that was developed by designer Dominic Wilcox as commissioned by the Global Footprint, a footwear maker in Northamtonshire. Wilcox was able to develop a unique prototype for GPS Shoes that can help people navigate through anywhere they go. This unique pair of shoes contains a GPS receiver as well as a means to use them to navigate to an uploaded position. The shoes work by first uploading the map and the target destination into the shoes via a USB cable.

The GPS box fixed into the heels of the GPS shoes can then be turned on by simply clicking both heels. It then provides indicators by means of LED lights fixed into the front end of both shoes. One is designed as a straight line that will be indicating the distance from the target location. The other shoe comes with LED lights arranged in a circular manner that would help indicate the direction of which the user needs to follow to get into the destination. It may be quite a rather unique way of finding a location, but the GPS Shoes does provide a novel insight towards finding other uses for GPS to help people.
