Full-Time Nanny Shoes 

Are you tired of chasing after your kids to be active instead of watching TV? Are so entirely devoid of self-control and motivation that you can't remember to get off the couch by yourself? Never fear!!! A British student has developed a pair of shoes, called Square Eyes, that turn on or off the TV based on how many steps the wearer has taken that day.

Not that watching less TV and exercising more are bad things, but this is a slightly stupid approach. The shoes measure 'exercise' by what seems to be an advanced pedometer. What's to stop people from sitting in front of the telly and tapping their feet? Will my Restless Leg Syndrome artificially elevate my step count?
