Where this pair of stilettos separates itself from the pack is in its ability to display a range of different designs, which can be browsed, selected and modified from a mobile phone.

This pair of hi-tech high heels has electronic ink screens stitched into the sides, and embedded Bluetooth technology connects the footwear to the Volvorii Timeless smartphone app. In here, the wearer can choose from a variety of motifs in black and white, producing patterns to accurately coordinate with particular ensembles, and even the make the e-ink shoes the focal point of one's apparel. This innovative product demonstrates the vast applications of e-ink outside of electronic publishing.
