As we all know, riding motorcycle with maps is quite difficult. You just can't open a map while riding, and even when you can, reading the small details of the map, again while riding, is anything but safe. A GPS navigator is the solution; easy, takes little space and simple to get to your destination. But it does mean taking your eyes of the road and traffic to look at the little screen that is telling you to a turn in 200 meters. But not if Indian company Lechal will have its way.

Lechal Bluetooth Shoes

Lechal Open Lechal link in a new window is getting ready to introduce a new way of getting navigation instructions; by your foot! The idea is simple, they are making shoes that will receive navigational instructions (from your smartphone) and when you have to make a right turn, the right shoe will vibrate. Need to go left, the left shoe vibrates.

The data is received wirelessly via Bluetooth, and they have an intelligent USB charger to keep the shoes juiced up.

But most of us don't ride with running shoes, so what about us ATGATTAll The Gear, All The Time - meaning you always wear all your safety gear. rider, with motorcycle boots? Well, Lechal have another solution for you: Bluetooth enabled insoles.

Lechal Bluetooth Shoes

Just place their insoles inside your riding boots, turn on the GPS, and follow the vibrations.

Of course, if you get complicated situations with multiple junctions, you end up having to look at the screen, but it can be interesting to get a last minute reminder to turn NOW. But then if you are riding an old Harley-Davidson that shakes, rattles and rolls, you may never know when your feet are telling you to turn.....

Lechal Bluetooth Shoes

The shoes are expected to be selling for US$150.
