Alright, I know I have a habit of posting some useless things, products and crap but these by far take the cake. Rambler has created a shoe that Tweets. More after the jump.
Rambler are a pair of sneakers, developed by Ricardo Nascimento and Tiago Martins, that use the Twitter platform to literally microblg every step you take.
Everyone that uses the microblog service notice the massive amount of useless information that is spread over there. This project intent to criticize this by posting literally every step you take in real life.
A sensor embedded under the sole detects when the wearer is walking.
This information is sent via blooetooth to a mobile phone that makes the postings on Twitter.
When the sensor detects a certain amount of pressure, the word “step” is posted. For the other moments the “.” symbol is posted. Following these postings one can know if the wearer is walking or not and also predict his speed.
