Talking Shoe from Google

Think wearable technologies like Google Glass is cool? Well, Google is at it again, this time, showing off a pair of talking shoes at the ongoing South by Southwest (SXSW) conference in Austin, Texas. Working with other companies – YesYesNo, ad agency 72andSunny, and Adidas, the four attached a small computer to two Adidas tennis shoes along with an accelerometer, a gyroscope, Bluetooth and other technologies, the shoe is not only able to “talk” via a pair of built-in speakers, but also able to post activities to Google+.
