Search giant Google has unveiled the company's newest project called Google "Talking Shoe" at the 2013 SXSW event, according to a report.
The futuristic Google Talking Shoe is an experimental talking sneaker concept being developed by Google. The shoe is said to be able to literally talk and communicate with its user in a very social way, as it motivates that user and gives feedback while that person is doing certain tasks such as walking, running or exercising, for example.
The upcoming Google Talking Shoe will make use of pressure sensors, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a Bluetooth, and other off the shelf technologies, according to the report.
Google has partnered with shoe-maker Adidas in their talking sneaker project. No word yet about its price and availability. This is Google's second high-profile experimental project on wearable technology after Google Glass, an augmented reality eyewear, which is expected to be released by Google sometime this year.
