EasyJet Sneakairs isn’t just another smart shoe fitted
with a fitness tracker, once synchronized with your
phone, it directs you to your destination through GPS.



This is how it works


The shoe connects with your phone via bluetooth
and each of the pair has motors placed inside that
vibrate. Once connected to the GPS app on your
phone and you’ve already set your destination, you
should feel a buzz either on the right or left feet
depending if you’re to take the right turning or the
left.

Sneakair also has other vibration patterns that lets
you know if you’ve missed a turn and you need to go
back. It also alerts you when you’ve finally reached
your destination.
The pair of sneakers is manufactured by EasyJet, a
low-cost airline based in the UK. Maurizio Pesce
at Wired took the sneakers for a spin and reported
that the only issue with it right now is the battery life
which only lasts for about three hours. The company
is however working on making it last much longer.
