Dada “Code M” MP3 shoe/player

Okay, I’m all for gadgets and things, but when I read about this, I just can’t help but laugh and shake my head. What else can they come up with!? This thing is just plain funny, AND funny looking too.

Appropriately named, Dada “Code M” is a pair of athletic shoes that doubles as a wireless musical device. The control is integrated into the shoe’s heel and tongue, with memory storage of about 100 songs and a 6-hour battery life. A USB port on the lateral side of the shoe allows downloading of music and re-charging of the battery. You can choose to listen to the music by using the wireless headset, which picks up from the shoes as far away as 30 feet, or pump the music through their speaker.

But what does all these specification matter? I mean, you’re listening to your shoe!! Can you imagine taking off your stinky shoe and putting it on the table to re-charge or transfer files? What’s your mother gonna say? “Get that stinky shoe off of my table!” That’s what she’s gonna say.

The company is already planning on even more interesting applications for the future. “Get Fit” program will provide access to workout related data, while “Get Smart” program will allow users to forward phone calls from a cell phone to the Code M headset. Yes, your lifelong dream will finally come true; you can talk to the shoe and pretend to be Maxwell Smart. Other features are in the works too: GPS devices, navigational systems, and the LED display to stream video and enter the “game” market.

If nothing else, for the price of $199.99, these shoes will definitely get you some serious attention.

Well if it encourages people to get fit, than I guess it is not a bad idea. I do agree it is rather funny looking though.

LILC:

how can you wear a shoe that has electronics in them, because if it rains or you step in a puddle the devies in the shoe is going to mess up.
