These New Sneakers Turn Music Into a Full-Body Experience


As if Marty McFly's self lacing shoes in Back to the Future II weren't cool enough, now a company called Drop Labs is releasing a shoe that will connect to Bluetooth devices and vibrate along to music that’s playing.

The company said people are drawn to the shoes because it helps re-create the live music experience...and we've ALL been missing that lately!

AltPress reports:

The EP 01 sneakers work with its embedded patented technology in the midsole. The technology takes the audio from any connected device and converts it into stereo. Then, the sound is delivered through the footwear via Bluetooth in the form of bass vibration.

“The embedded software platform allows us to continue to refine the experience,” DropLabs CEO Susan Paley says. “And provide more unique customization at the individual level. “We’ve developed a proprietary technology that we have integrated into the midsole of the sneaker that converts audio signals into vibrations. When these vibrations are delivered through your feet and synchronized with what you hear in your ears, it is a completely transformative experience for digital entertainment.”
