Ever wander how much you walk every day? Well how about shoes, with several sensors and pressure-sensitive points that records and stores various information, such as the milage, or the amount of steps you've taken etc. This type of thing could be used to market the shoe, by saying something like "so
durable you could walk for 10,000 miles" or whatever. Clearly just a half-baked (or maybe an already-baked) idea.... but in any case, I personally think its a winner.
