This is just in! Apple patent the poop machine. It may look like a toilet, but its actually a nutrient dispenser for bacterias to chew on. You need to clean it once in awhile or methane gases will cause you nausea and vomiting.
 
lights? someone please sue apple, how long has it been since KIDS have lights on the shoes?

seriously, those who can buy this probably buy shoes long before they are worn out, and those that are not would probably just use their eyes

[citation][nom]chairman ray[/nom]At this rate, they're going to patent the iToilet, which tells you if you took a piss or a shit, because people will be too lazy to check for themselves.[/citation]
The Japanese got this covered, along with other ideas:

[citation][nom]stickmansam[/nom]seriously people..... are we that out of good ideas....[/citation]

Pretty close actually...

Most "new" ideas only exist in the virtual/electronic world nowadays and have little bearing in the real world...

Yea, give me a thumbs down all you want, but when was the last time you saw something that was absolutely, fundamentally new in the past frickin forever?

And if it's damage, just use super glue.

This is probably designed for runners. Runners often replace shoes every 300-500 miles. The shoes still look new but do not run as well. Using overused shoes for running can cause knee and ankle pain. It is often annoying to write down and keep track of a shoes mileage. It could also be useful for people with foot/ankle/gait problems.
