I thought that APRS was all about knowing where your assets are. Now if
those shoes were cable of receiving messages as well as sending them, they
could be truly useful! Ummm... where do they put the antenna? Gotta keep 
that beacon within their aloha circle though. In some places that could be 
about two blocks. 

Hmmm... the above story has a link to http://theaphroditeproject.tv/saftey
where it says "APRS uses amateur radio to transmit position reports, weather
reports, and messages between users." Given the intended use, perhaps the
shoes should be on a "professional" frequency instead of an amateur
frequency - hi! http://theaphroditeproject.tv/advertising With the built-in
video display, there are some real advertising opportunities there.
