EasyJet has launched a prototype for a new set of smart shoes that aim to revolutionize travel. Named Sneakairs, the product uses GPS technology to guide users to their desired destination with in-shoe vibrations. Rather than staring at smartphone screens or getting lost in maps, consumers can enjoy the sights as they travel and keep their phones in their pockets without worrying about getting lost.
“The Sneakair is yet another example of how EasyJet is always at the forefront of technology, all designed to make travel easier for our customers,” says Peter Duffy, EasyJet’s marketing director.
Duffy also cites the company’s Mobile Host app, which helps EasyJet passengers navigate airports. “Our passengers embrace technology before they travel and while they travel with us, so why not once they arrive at their destination?”
