Pokémon GO requires a lot of walking unless you are cheating, and a lot of searching but what if you could combine the two? Well with the planned Pokémon GO smart sneakers you get comfort and vibrating heels when a Pokémon is near.
Technology company Vixole is designing the smart shoe called the Vixole Matrix which can link to your iOS or Android phone and will be compatible with Pokémon GO. The show incorporates a thin LED layer showing Pokémon and vibrates when a wild Pokémon is nearby.
A Kickstarter is planned in September to fund the creation of the Pokémon GO smart sneakers. The show also works with Google Maps which will vibrate when you need to turn and when you receive a call or text.
When the Kickstarter commences in September, the Early Bird offer will snag you a pair of the shoes for around $200. They will be available in three colours; Beige, White and Black.
