These are possibly the coolest pair of shoes I’ve ever seen in my life. Created by Dominic Wilcox, these shoes make can help you navigate to anywhere you wish to travel to, in a Wizard of Oz kind-of-way. You know how Dorothy could click her shoes together to go home?

You upload your destination and the GPS, which is embedded in the heel, is activated by a heel click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination. The prototypes are built using Arduino.
