No Place Like Home GPS Shoes by Dominic Wilcox

One of the No Place Like Home shoes has GPS technology embedded in the heel and an antenna in the red ankle tag. It communicates wirelessly with the other shoe. Custom-made software plots the location of home on a map before the data is uploaded to the shoe through a USB cable that plugs into the insole. The ring of LEDs in the left toe points the wearer in the right direction while those on the right toe show the journey's progress.
