LED Light Up Shoes Controlled by Your Phone
Well this looks like fun!
We have seen the style of the LED light up shoes start last year. Most of them has the switch on the inside to determine what color however Sync Footwear has just hit the ball out of the park with the next shoe you will want in your closet or on your feet.
With Sync Footwear everything is controlled via a convenient app on your phone. It has a variety of settings including solid colors and various presets that allow you to control how fast, what color, and what style of lights the shoes are presenting.
“I had always noticed those crazy kid shoes with lights and thought why can’t I have a pair. So after the App, Circuit board, LED and Bluetooth technology caught up with my idea, Sync Footwear was created. Now I have my own LED shoes except these will Sync the LEDs to your phone’s music playlist or pull from the phone’s mic and Sync the LEDs to live music.” – David Panettiere
That’s not all, another feature no other LED shoe has is there are also music-reactive ones. The shoes feature two settings involving music: the first allows you to play music through your phone, (Yep they have an app for that too) and the shoes will react to the beat; this is the easiest and clearest setting for the shoes to react to since the music is being played straight through your phone and doesn’t require the shoes to “hear” anything. The second is a reactive setting to the music around you, and will use your phone’s microphone to pick up on audio. It will react to a person’s voice, as well as the beats in the club – the intensity of the lights on the shoes is affected by the volume of the sounds in your surroundings.
Sync Footwear set up a Kickstarter where they we able to gather #9250 from backers. Since that has ended they set up an Indiegogo for their product nine days ago. Sync Footwear is currently offering perks for Indiegogo at a minimum of $210 for their basic shoe model, which is still apparently a full sixty dollars off normal retail price (bringing the real total up to $270). There are still 17 days remaining in their Indiegogo campaign, so go check it out!
