An app that uses a camera mounted on your glasses / lapel to spot gum on the footpath / sidewalk.

It then uses your smartphone to compare the image to a database of known gum spots in that area.

If it identifies a new gum spot in your likely footfall zone it sends a signal to a gyroscopic device in the heel of your shoe to move your foot slightly so as to avoid stepping in the masticated mess.
