Paul Gardner-Stephen has invented the world’s first Shoe Phone. The device has received so much attention, he is considering making it available commercially.
Paul originally created the item for a drama presentation with a “Get Smart” theme, as he could not find one on the Internet.
Gardner-Stephen insists the concept could be applied to caring for the elderly and remote patient monitoring. He said storing electronics in a shoe would be, “unobtrusive and wouldn’t be objectionable to older people who aren’t comfortable with modern technology.”
Detailed instructions on creating the shoe phone are posted on instructables.com, and thousands have downloaded the information and one person has already built their own phone and made available on eBay last month for $60.
Very Maxwell Smart!
