Nike sneakers communicate wirelessly with iPod Nanos

Posted by Luminus on May 24, 2006


The Nike+ running shoes contain a pedometer sensor and a wireless
transmitter that talks to a receiver you plug into your iPod Nano. You
program your workout routine (and music) into your Nano, and it
collaborates with the sensor to deliver messages like "two miles to go"
to your headphones as you go, and tracks your workout for upload to
your PC's fitness-tracking app.

I'm a little slack on my running these days and sadly, I don't own an iPod…yet (don't tell anyone, they'd wonder what kinda geek I am, well unless they intend to buy me one), It'd be a trip to see what the hardware hackers make of a wireless sensor that connects to the most popular portable player on the market.

I think it's pretty nifty, but Warren Ellis thinks different, very different.
