Around this time last year, we covered a pair of smart shoes from Chinese computer company Lenovo. It's been awhile since we've heard anything else about them, but now we have an update from the Lenovo Tech World 2016 convention, which took place yesterday in San Francisco.
The event showcased an updated version of the Intel-powered, LED-equipped smart sneaker, which The Verge says was made in collaboration with Vibram. Like the pair we saw last year, this latest prototype features fitness tracking capabilities, but that's only the half of it.
Although the specifics aren't yet clear, Lenovo says these smart shoes also boast gaming capabilities. At yesterday's event, they were set up with a mobile running game where the shoes functioned as a controller, allowing the wearer to control the on-screen runner by moving their feet back and forth.
Unfortunately, these Lenovo smart shoes are currently in proof of concept stage, which means you won't be able to buy them anytime soon. For now, take a closer look in the video below.
