After reading about the vibrating bra that can miraculously make boobs bigger without any surgery, I'm convinced that the future is here—especially when it comes to wearable tech.

A lot of new gadgets came out to play at the 2018 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including the latest fad in shoes: E-vone smart shoes.

This isn't the first time that digital shoes make the rounds, but it is the first time that they promise to save lives. The shoes, which were invented by a French startup, notify your loved ones or medical services if you (or the person wearing them) have fallen or had an accident. They were specifically designed for older adults, constructions workers, hikers, and whoever has an emergency when alone, according to Engadget.

The E-vone smart shoes, which will come in different colors and styles, have a few sensors, including a "GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope and a pressure system that knows every time someone put on the shoe on and activates the alarm."

They are expected to hit the market this year with prices from $100 to $150 plus additional services. Would you buy them?
