Dorothy – A wearable device that connects your shoes

Meet “Dorothy” — a wearable device that connects your shoes to your phone. Simply clip the “Ruby” (a small connected device) into your shoe, click your heels 3 times, and you can call your phone, text your friends, and more…

Dorothy is powered by the LightBlue Bean, an Arduino micro-controller with a built in Bluetooth chip, accelerometer, and coin cell battery. Simply clip the “Ruby” into your shoe, connect it to the Dorothy iPhone App, and select your desired action after a successful trigger (3 heel clicks). The onboard accelerometer sends a signal to your phone via Bluetooth (listening for spikes in the data over a short period of time).
