Submission + - Boffin Makes Working Shoe Phone & Finds Use Fo (g-s.es) 1

The Boffin responsible writes: "Maxwell Smart, the bumbling comic spy in the 1960s television series Get Smart, frequently used his 'shoe phone' to report his latest predicament to The Chief at CONTROL. Now a Flinders University computer scientist has combined the latest telecommunications components to produce the real thing. While it was devised as a prop for an amateur theatre production, Flinders post-doctoral fellow in bioinformatics, Paul Gardner-Stephen, realized the concepts behind the shoe phone have potential for the development of biomedical devices."
