Can shoes communicate and connect the user's activity to web? Yes! The Adidas smart shoes, co-developed by art, copy & code, artist Zach Lieberman and interactive design studio YesYesNo, can communicate and connect the user's activity to web. Using an accelerometer, a gyroscope, bluetooth and other technologies, the 'talking shoes' translate sneaker movements into funny and motivating commentary - where speech can be posted to google+, being sent as real-time advertisement units. If the user chooses to, they can also broadcast the dialogue via on-board speakers.
