That awkward blind date. The late-night taxi queue. The interview when you mistook a handshake for a hug. We’ve all had moments when we wished we could just click our heels together and be at home.
From next year, thanks to an app called Dorothy and a dinky device called Ruby, those dreams will (kind of) become a reality.
Ruby slips inside your shoe and links to Dorothy using Bluetooth. When you need to make a quick get-away, all you have to do is click your heels together three times and an action is triggered – like calling a cab with Uber or texting your friends your exact location.
It’s all still in development so don’t get excited just yet. But if you start to notice people around you furiously tapping their shoes together, you’ll know it’s definitely something you said. Sorry.
