Alright, this is one of the most unexpected inventions that’s been shown as of late. Pizza Hut has gone mad once again and returned one of the most questionably practical devices ever created. As such, the Pie Tops are once again available.
The Pie Tops were unveiled last year by Pizza Hut as a limited edition collectible. These sneakers were able to order pizza for the user on the press of a button. This is done thanks to a Bluetooth connection directly to the user’s phone.
Now, the return of the Pie Tops is seeing a few new features with it. A second button has been added to the left shoe that’s capable of pausing live TV. The Pie Tops 2.0 will now allow users to have a timeout so they can gather their pizza.
It’s a rather curious invention that I fail to see any sort of practicality into. However, the capability of pausing Live TV via a partnership with Cable providers is a very neat feature. It’s not exactly a ground breaking invention but it is an invention nonetheless.
I think of it as a very ellaborate marketing stunt. Once you think about it the practicality of a “Pizza Button” leaves a lot to be desired. Not to mention the times where orders will be accidentally placed on the shoe by some prankster or by pure accident.
Yes, I am aware that you can turn off the tap-order feature. But I doubt anyone will exactly know how to do such thing. I am mostly interested in these shoes for the reason that they are capable of pausing Live TV.
It’s a rather interesting feature that allows users to finally be able to answer the door and not miss the crucial moments in, say, a football game. In my case, it would be an eSports tournament finals set.
I’m sure there will be fans of this limited edition product. You can watch a video all about the Pie Tops 2.0 below:
