The GPS Shoe has joined the permanent collection of the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, Sweden being featured in an exhibition highlighting the 100 most important inventions in the history of mankind.
The 1 year exhibit debuts at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, Sweden at the end of the month, where the GPS Shoe will become part of the permanent exhibition along with an extensive collection of other inventions. “We are thrilled to include the GPS Shoe, as we spotlight the most impactful inventions as identified by the Swedish people,” remarks Alexandra Selvivanova, Curator of the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology.
Winning the prestigious 2010 People’s Choice Award for Most Innovative Connected Location Device, the GPS Shoe is perhaps the most groundbreaking and game changing application of 2 way GPS technology to date. By using the global GSM network and Google satellite imagery along with a proprietary backend platform, the GPS Shoe provides the ability to locate individuals who have a tendency to wander or become lost due to cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or autism.
