An new level of Wi-Fi detection is coming. Remember the Wi-Fi detecting t-shirt? Now comes Wi-Fi sneakers.
The designer Stefan Dukaczewik calls his concept sneaker ASRD â€“ â€˜A Step in the Right Directionâ€™. The ASRD sneaker is equipped with an 802.11 detection unit under the flap of the left shoe. These shoes are merely just converted Nike Dunk sneakers. The pressure sensor activates the unit when stepped on. The three LED lights represent signal strength within 50 meters. Blinking LEDs mean no Wi-Fi detected.
If this was interchangeable with other shoes…. maybe an interesting gimmick.
