The Passive Voice brings the exciting news of an Indiegogo fundraising campaign, as reported by engaget, to make sneakers with changing designs on the side. I immediately thought of having a book’s text displayed on your shoe one page at a time, though it might lead to awkward twisting and stretching to get to the end of the story. This quickly led me to the ultimate killer-app justification for the expense of these shoes (if they ever get off the drawing board). You install the answers to the test on your shoes, making sure to return them to a harmless splash screen image whenever the invigilator passes by.

It all sounds too good to be true — and may of course turn out to be just that.
