Are you there 99?

March 18, 2009

An Australian inventor has developed a shoe phone.

It might have made sense way back in the 60s long before mobile phones were invented when Maxwell Smart and his sidekick Agent 99 were defeating the forces of evil on our TV screens in Get Smart. But I’m not sure that it would have any more than novelty value now.

Though you can watch and listen to the inventor  explain its benefits here.

I agree it would make it much easier to find the phone on your foot than in a pocket or bag but I don’t think I’ll be in the market for one.

The sort of things you’re likely to stand on in a paddock mean it’s not a good idea to put your footwear to your ear. Sorry about that, Chief.
