Meet the GPS shoe, aka “Blue GPS.” Featuring Bluetooth, the new shoes enable the wearer to be tracked by friends and family through their cell phones. The wearer simply inputs up to five phone numbers of family/friends into his cell phone (eventually this capability will be able to be expanded to up to 20 people) and pushes a button on the shoe to activate a link with those on his list. The Blue GPS can be enabled with all cellular phones.
Another button can be pressed for an ‘E911′ call. When that button is pushed, a signal is sent to IDG’s monitoring division, ID Conex, which then attempts to contact the wearer. If the shoe wearer does not respond, ID Conex then alerts the proper authorities.
This is an excellent idea for people traveling or, more importantly, keeping track of your children. The Blue GPS is expected to retail for about $150 when it hits stores in Latin America this fall. No information when/if it will be available in the United States.
