These GPS Brogues Can Actually Guide You Home With A Click Of Your Heels

Never again will you have to aimlessly wander home after a night on the town. Inspired by the ruby slippers that transported Dorothy Gale back to Kansas in The Wizard of Oz, British designer Dominic Wilcox created a pair of red-soled brogues with a GPS embedded in the sole. With a literal click of your heels, the “No Place Like Home GPS Shoes” (yes, they're really called that) can guide your feet to any desired locale on earth.
After the wearer uploads an address via a USB drive and custom mapping software, the GPS technology can be activated by tapping the heels together. LED lights on the tip of the right shoe guide the wearer in the appropriate direction, while the left communicates wirelessly with an antenna to track your progress.
Now, we’re just waiting for Wilcox to design a pair of wedges or stilettos (preferably covered in red sequins) with the same technology, so we can make our transformation into a tech-savvy Dorothy complete.
