Metal Detecting Sandals – Yes, They’re Real

Carrying around a metal detector while wearing a big set of headphones isn’t exactly the coolest look for the beach this Summer, but neither are these metal detecting sandals which I assume are meant to be a more subtle approach to finding buried treasure. There’s a copper coil embedded in the sole of the right sandal which connects to a removable battery pack you’re supposed to wear strapped to your calf. The detector can find metal objects buried as ‘deep’ as 2 feet underfoot, and it will alert you to their presence via a flashing red light, a gentle vibration and an audible buzz. It’s powered by a single 9V battery which is good for about 6 hour of use, and you can find it at Hammacher Schlemmer for $59.95.
