Google showed off the “talking shoe” for the first time at SXSW, the Austin tech and culture event.
It hosts about 250 phrases that the small computer in the tongue of the shoe spits out at you, depending on differing factors, including whether someone is stationary, walking, running or playing a sport.
Google and its ad agency made it clear to reporters in Austin that it has absolutely no plans whatsoever to actually release the shoes; rather, the next-gen footwear was developed as part of a thought experiment on how wearable technology could interact with the human body and with the Internet. (The shoe, of course, is able to post status updates to Google+, and the video advertisement below shows the shoe with its own Google+ profile.)
