Apple: Hi-tech high tops ?
In an effort to complete Apple's iWatch, Apple have hired designer, Ben Shaffer rumoured to be part of the Nike FuelBand project. The FuelBand logs fitness activity, and relays that data to mobile devices. Although Shaffer was not directly involved in the development of that particular project many believe Apple may be developing a smart shoe linked to the iPhone 5. Ben Shaffer is an expert in how fabrics weave together and would be an asset to the company looking to implant sensors into clothing or other wearable accessories. To date Apple have not launched any wearable hi-tech gear but could be preparing to dip their toe in the market. Watch this space.
