Roboots

Boat Shaped Shoes with Oars.

A pair of boat-shaped shoes with robotic oars which move back and forth, as though rowing, when they sense movement.

To avoid the embarrasment of tripping over your own oars, they would only be mounted on the outside edges of your roboots.

As technology develops, I'd like to hope the oars could eventually tie your shoelaces too.

       is that a suggestion, a warning, or an order, po?!

       Both.

       There were three things mentioned... both doesn't work. We should invent a new word for "all three," called trioth.

       Would these shoe galleys have rams? Would they shoot flaming arrows at passing shoes, and, coming alongside, would grappling hooks be used?

       perhaps we could breed some sort of mini-human, hordes of them, that when they tossed the grapple hooks at other pairs of roboots, they would realistically board and take over the other shoes.   

       a reenactment of the pirate ships of old, right at your feet. of course, the seized roboots would then become yours.

       The analogous "robutts" could function as a life preserver, or to add emphasis during public speaking.
