The WESC KarmaTech project introduces RFID technology into shoes. Although this technology is mostly used for retail and inventory processes, it also can have a social impact by making our surroundings more interactive.

By embedding RFID chips into shoes, WESC KarmaTech allows you to register online and connect to different social media outlets. From there it interacts with a special mat so that one's status is updated on these social networks.
