The Aphrodite Project: Platforms


We spotted The Aphrodite Project at NextFest last night. Designed to help “sex workers protect themselves,” these Get Smart x Batman (Batgirl?) shoes bring hi tech muscle to the hustle.

Designed both for improved marketing—the shoes display video, can flash the worker’s name, number, message, email address or web site and can play music—they also have a number of safety features—an alarm, one-button access to 911, hidden compartments, Rave Wireless's Rave Guardian and a GPS system which allows you to send your whereabouts to friends or sex workers rights groups and can also tell you where your friends are.

No details yet on pricing/availabilty or other styles.
