Smart Insoles That Navigate You To The Nearest Coffee Shop

Navigation is a popular theme for wearable devices. Google Glass is great at taking you to the closest Starbucks, Navigate, a fashionable GPS-enabled coat, will help you find your way to the nearest nightspot, and this DIY Smart Cycling  takes you to the nearest Citibike Sharing station. 

SuperShoes, by Dhairya Dand, too have typical mapping and wayfinding functionality but with a clever twist.

The patch moves and stretches with the body and incorporates commercial, off-the-shelf chip-based electronics.

Once these patches become inexpensive and disposable, I can see a wide variety of applications that go beyond the medical and health monitoring field.
