These Slippers Know How to Make You Feel at Home #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #tech

Epic Nissan Self Parking Slippers

My friends know my humor and this week one of them slipped this into my email—a post about self-driving slippers. This is Nissan’s doing according to designboom; the auto company is creating awareness about its proPilot Park system with a special preview event for select guests at a hotel. Check out the video for examples that include more than just wearable tech.

Of course the real reason I’m posting this is because it is pure delight to speculate on how the slippers function. There’s only two wheels involved and they look as if they might even retract like the wheely shoes your kids probably have in the closet. There doesn’t seem to be a bunch of cameras built into these babies, so I’m going to go with either remote control or pre-programmed pattern for the sake of a video shoot. Pre-programmed could involve GPS or ultrasonic, though. What do you think?
