BIONIC SHOES

Police in Japan’s Kyoto Prefecture raided a shoe manufacturer in July and commandeered a list of about 1,500 purchasers of the company’s signature “tosatsu shoes” — shoes with built-in cameras. Investigators have begun visiting the purchasers at home to ask them to hand in the shoes (but, out of fairness, said they wouldn’t cause trouble for customers who could produce a legitimate reason for needing to take photographs and video by pointing the shoe at something). The seller was charged with “aiding voyeurism” and fined about $4,500 under a nuisance-prevention law.
