Google Talking Shoe

Google‘s latest technological innovation would almost certainly be a hoax if it had been announced on April 1st. But apparently, the Talking Shoe is real, and it’s a part of Google’s participation in their Art, Copy, Code advertising campaign.

The idea behind the Talking Shoe is that your shoes will help add knowledge and motivation to your workout by talking to you and barking words of encouragment if you’re slacking off during athletic training. Essentially, it’s anĀ adidas sneaker outfitted with a gyroscope, accelerometer, and Bluetooth.

Since the Talking Shoe is just a part of a larger ad campaign for Google, it’s unlikely that these will be hitting the market any time soon. But you never know!

You can see a video of the Talking Shoe in action below.
