MindBullet: Put your best foot forward (20 November 2014)

Wired, digital shoes. YES! This one of the easier future scenarios to defend. It leads on from the "Internet of Things" trend - objects being connected to the Internet, not just people. Wired shoes present some amazing opportunities for cool technology:
  • Measuring health
  • Rewarding walking
  • Route mapping for hikes
  • Time estimates for walking routes
  • Auto check in for locations (ha!)
  • Finding lost friends in a club (ha ha!)

MindBullets are a fantastic series of articles from the FutureWorld group. Essentially they're news broadcasts from the future, showing us examples of just how quickly our world is changing, and where it might take us.
