Great project that will let you scoot around without having to constantly look at your phone for directions. From wired:
The system uses a vibration module, battery and a miniature Bluetooth Low Energy unit crammed onto board that is just 3 millimeters thick and fits into the sole of each shoe. Of course it pairs to any smartphone. The buzzes that tell you where to go come from a pedestrian navigator application that uses the Google Maps API. Like any navi app, simple fire it up, plan your itinerary, and follow the turn-by-turn directions it send to your kicks.
