Google gave the sneakers some personality. If you start running, you might find it cheering as you run. If the sneaker gets lazy, it will cheer you on if you sit on the couch. Although Google does have backing from Adidas (who is the manufacturer of the original sneaker before it was 'Google-ized'), the Mountain View company is not getting into the sneaker business no matter how many fans tell them to just do it. The idea of all of this is to show how tons of data can be analyzed to tell a story "in new and different ways."

Have fun with it in the rain! But seriously, this is like google glasses and i'm not sure there is strong enough market for all this...well, cyber-junk. Seems like we are in the day in age when A LOT of good tech is coming out, but also a lot of bad tech. Though this could have potential, it just seems like a bad idea.

Nothing very exciting, basic hardware many people have the ability to do that at home (myself have made some projects using arduino chips and boards). What I see: Arduino Board:https://www.sparkfun.com/produ
Bluetooth Modem:https://www.sparkfun.com/produ cts/10269
