KarmaTech: Social media for your shoe

Imagine a shoe that can update your Facebook status, get you a discount at a coffee bar or put your picture on Flickr.

Students at Swedish agency Hyper Island developed this concept for shoe brand WeSC, describing it as ‘a social take on Nike+’. The idea is to place an RFID (radio frequency identification) tag in a shoe . The KarmaTech shoe can be placed on a reader (for example, on a mat) to update the wearer’s Facebook or Twitter status. It could also get them special entry to an event or free products. They could even make a Facebook friend request, if they stand on the mat with a new friend.
