Forget Glasses: Google + Adidas = Talking Shoes (Video)


Now here are some kicks that make a statement.

Lots of them, in fact.

Google and Adidas teamed up to develop the "Talking Shoe," which made it's debut at SXSW this week.

According to reports, these shoes were made for talking - and that's just what they do,  tracking your speed and performance - and proffering its share of smack talk or props depending on how you're doing. It even syncs with your mobile phone to provide words of encouragement, advice and more. All of which is sharable on our soc nets, of course.

Don't go bugging Zappos just yet - the shoes aren't for sale. It's all part of Google's "Art, Copy & Code Initiative (the whole Project Re:Brief thing). But the tech could go open source, so you never know.

Get the full scoop, here.
