The Verb for Shoe footwear was designed by MIT graduate Ronald Demon. The kicks are high tech sneakers that use two air balloons and a computer to automatically the adjust cushioning based on the activity of the wearer.

"The on-shoe computer is constantly monitoring the activities, adjusting the cushion comfort on the fly in real time," says talk2myshirt.

So basically, you will also be able to manipulate the shoe's settings wirelessly via the computer, and built-in wireless networking in the shoe will let you swap contact information with other nearby Verb wearers to exchange personal data if you desire.

The Verb for Shoe sells for $700.
