Dorothy: Connect Your Shoes To Your Phone

Smart shoes are nothing new. We have already seen shoes that can track your activity and even provide you with directions. Want to turn your existing shoe into a smart shoe? Dorothy has you covered. It is a wearable device you can rely on to get out of trouble, get a cab, and even order pizza. Just clip the Ruby to your shoe to get started.

Dorothy relies on the LightBlue Bean, an Arduino micro-controller with a built in Bluetooth chip, accelerometer, and coin cell battery, to work. Once it is connected to your iPhone, you can select your desired action after 3 heel clicks. Use Dorothy to generate a fake call to get out of uncomfortable situations, get a cab, and more. Best of all, you don’t have to buy a new pair of shoes to get started.
