MSTRPLN and Ubiq's Wi-Fi concept shoes

Concept products are fun, aren't they? I think so at least. So that's why when I happened across these Wi-fi detecting shoes, a concept designed by MSTRPLN and Ubiq, I just had to share them.


These shoes have a sensor within the sole that is pressure sensitive. This means that whenever you walk, a WLAN detector is turned on. This would keep track of any Wi-Fi hotspots that you come across while out and about.

It also seems there are LEDs on the tongue of the shoes that show how strong the signal is in the area. However, we don't know anymore details at this time. It is just a concept, after all. But I guess it would be kind of cool to be able to see your connections.
