Ladies, if this technology catches on then you’re looking at massive savings when it comes to shoe shopping. Courtesy of a company named iShüu Technologies, you will soon be able to customize the appearance of your shoes using a simple smartphone app, which controls their color and pattern. The technology is based on flexible electronic ink (e-ink) display that was inserted in the upper part of the footwear.
Dubbed Volvorii Timeless, the smart shoe’s sole is hollowed out and houses a Bluetooth low-energy receiver that enables the smartphone app to communicate with the display panel. When it comes to charging, a 200 mAh battery ensures great efficiency, especially since it can be charged wirelessly.
The shoes also boast fastenings at their front and at the back of the heel, which can be used for further customization with shoe clips or bows. The campaign is currently under way on Indiegogo, where you can pledge $249 and purchase your very own par. Considering its great versatility, the Volvorii Timeless smart shoe is quite cheap.
