Consumer Wearable Computing Shoes


'VectraSense Technologies, an MIT spin-off company, has developed a computerized shoe product “Verb for Shoe” that provides computerized shoe adjustments according to your movements...

The cost of the basic shoe is $499.99, and fully loaded with all the options, the cost would be $1000.'

Their site makes it seem like a joke, using excessive flash, but MIT has been known for their 'power-full shoes' and 'business card sharing shoes', so going to market with such a device does sound plausable.
