Red Lechal shoe

Technology moves in interesting ways: my washing machine tells me when the door is ajar, the refrigerator can report when I’m out of milk, and now my shoes can tell me which way to go. Pretty cool, right?

These shoes, called Lechal (“take me there” in Hindi), connect wirelessly to your GPS system and use vibration to direct the user in which direction they should go next. So if you need to go right, your right foot will vibrate, and if you’re supposed to go left…well, you get the picture.

You want your kid to have a phone, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, and you don’t want all kinds of bells and whistles. OwnFone may be your solution – it’s stripped down and simple, just places and receives calls. It doesn’t even text.

Even cooler, you choose the buttons for the phone, and one of those options is braille. You can also choose image buttons – pictures of the people that button will call – or the traditional number buttons.
