DropLabs’ New Ep 01 Sound Immersion Footwear lets you do more than running. These smart sneakers use stereo haptic feedback to let you feel what you see and hear. Both the new EP 01 Triple Black and the Classic editions contain numerous system upgrades including dynamic tuning settings designed specifically for gaming, music and movies.

The app upgrade includes an in-app LED color wheel to adjust the hue of the lights embedded within the sneaker and some surprises in the form of “easter eggs,” says a press release.

DropLabs CEO Susan Paley has made a career out of bringing innovative products to market for the likes of industry leaders like Beats by Dre and Harman International.

“We’ve developed a proprietary technology that we have integrated into the midsole of the sneaker that converts audio signals into vibrations,” said Paley. “When these vibrations are delivered through your feet and synchronized with what you hear in your ears, it is a completely transformative experience for digital entertainment. Although initially envisioned to recreate the energy of live music, adding this immersion layer to gaming, movies and VR is the next level.”
