Do you ever want to let your shoes do the walking ? Angie Duignan has created an interactive, automated pair of shoes. Using Arduino, servo motors and a photo sensor the interactive automated shoes are instilled with a sense of identity/personality through the use of movement. The shoes comes to life only through interaction from the public. On one level her creation makes reference to the story ‘The Wizard of Oz’, however these shoes can no longer be worn and have no magical powers to transport the owner back home. Oh Well.
Check out the video below of them in action.
