These shoes are made for talking

An Australian computer scientist has developed a mobile phone housed in a shoe. Mr Gardner-Stephen got a cobbler friend to embed a Motorola handset in the heel of one shoe and a Bluetooth headset in the other.

'It's surprising, your first thought is it's completely impractical, but it's actually not that bad - the phone rings, you slip off the shoe, you open the heel and press the button and you're talking in around the same time it would take to fumble in a bag and pull the phone out," he said.
