Every little girl who watched The Wizard of Oz thought one thing: I want those ruby slippers. They were so beautiful, sparkly, colorful, and bright, like Christmas molded into a low heel and round toe.
And the idea that you could get home with three ladylike clicks of the heel warmed our lazy little hearts. Certainly a lot more glamorous than hailing down a cab like a wild banshee or digging through the depths of your bag for your phone to request an Uber.
Well, thanks to technology, it seems that perhaps some dreams really do come true. A creative agency called iStrategyLabs just unveiled the aptly named Dorothy, a device that will give you powers much like our favorite stranded Kansan.
All you have to do is slip “the ruby” a small Bluetooth-enabled micro-controller into your shoe, click your heels three times, and wait for your Uber to arrive.
