Many are familiar with the classic movie The Wizard of Oz and the famous ruby slippers that take Dorthy home after her frightening experience in Oz. iStrategyLabs hopes to take the premise of getting home by clicking your heels together a reality.

Dorthy is a small device which connects to your smartphone using low power Bluetooth. The device can be tucked or clipped into your shoes and has the ability to react to “heel clicks” through several sensors. Upon clicking your heels three times a pre-programed function can be set off. Whether calling a predetermined contact or summoning an Uber, the possibilities are immense.

iStrategyLabs is working on shrinking the product, and hopes to make it small enough to fit into insoles. As of present there are no details regarding the release of Dorthy.
