It’s Not Magic: You Can Change The Color Of Your Shoes With An App

It’s Not Magic: You Can Change The Color Of Your Shoes With An App

    It’s a shame we can’t watch Carrie Bradshaw turn green with envy on “Sex In The City” with an app that could change the color of her coveted shoes – even Sarah Jessica Parker would thrill over this new invention! You don’t have to be a celebrity to have a serious shoe addiction nowadays and with this clever creation, you can buy one pair of shoes with multiple colors and styles. Ishuu, the company behind this creative innovation, is calling it the Volvorii Timeless Smart Shoe and it’s slated to become “The world’s most elegant evolution in fashion tech.” These shoes take wearables to the next level on the runway and in the streets.

      The base shoe comes in either black or white, and then uses e-ink technology to change the color or pattern customization on the sides and in front. Although the basics are only available in black-and-white, be sure to look for more color and pattern choices in the future. E-ink tech does require occasional charging, but you should only have to power them up about once a month since it’s also very efficient with power usage. The app connects to the shoes via a Bluetooth LE receiver on your smartphone that is hidden in the soles of the shoes.

        But the customization doesn’t stop with color changes alone: clip on accessories add even more flair to this high-tech footwear. Currently closing out during their crowdfunding stage on Indiegogo, their entry level investments (offering a pair of these pumps at $149 and $249) are already sold out. Retail prices are estimated to be at $299 and are expected to ship in December of 2015. Imagine the possibilities – you could literally add your own custom logo and wear it on your shoe. From the corporate office in the morning to a more casual lunch with the girls and then hitting the club scene at night: change your style without changing shoes. It’s like a dream come true for shoe lovers everywhere.

          While there’s plenty of apps out there that will help with tech services, applications are now going high fashion in the über competitive shoe industry. Although still in the funding stage at the time of this writing, it’s only a matter of time before we see more apps geared towards fashion. Watch a video of this shoe in action on YouTube.

          Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

          Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

          Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

          Does technology have all the answers?

          This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

          Creating technological solutions transparently

          This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

          Technology as the connecting tool

          Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

          “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
