It Had To Happen: MP3 Sneakers



Personal Tech Pipeline

Music-playing electronics have made their way into clothing of all types, from belts to jackets, and from underwear to hats. Now the phenomenon is about to make its debut in shoes.

Dada footwear plans to unveil next month its "Code M" sneakers, which both play music and store data.

Users listen to music via a wireless headset that transmits from the shoe.

The "Code M" system is built into the shoe's heel and tongue.

The company says the device will store 100 songs with a six-hour battery life. A USB port on the lateral side of the shoe allows downloading of music and re-charging of the battery. The wireless headset works via Bluetooth, and picks up music from the shoes as far away as 30 feet. Code M shoes will become available April 6 and cost $199.99 a pair, according to the company.

Well, Microsoft has "unfolded" its "Origami" ultra-mobile PC platform Thursday. It turned out to be a full-featured PC smaller than a tablet but bigger than a PDA. Are you impressed?
Yes! I want one!
Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
