Google adidas talking shoe

The Google x adidas "Talking Shoe" in action.

Between Google Glass on the runway, designer smartphones as the norm, and model cams during Fashion Week, there's absolutely NO question that fashion is on a fast-track to Techsville these days. But despite all these crazy-cool innovations, the latest project in the pipe just might be the wildest one yet. Google and adidas have joined forces on a new sneaker that, thanks to some super slick features, is capable of turning into a smart-talking shoe with a major personality. Sure, the futuristic concept might SOUND all Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and whatnot, but it's actually way simpler than you'd think. Here's the lowdown: the aptly-named Talking Shoe seems like regular 3-stripe adidas at first glance, but once you look closer you'll see that there's speaker connected to the tongue that's capable of speaking 250 a highly dignified British accent, we might add.

Models strutted their stuff in Google's futuristic glasses at NYFW.

The future is nearly here, and we got to take a glimpse into it at Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week today. Google has been slowly but surely giving us more information on their mysterious Project Glass for a while now, but there are many questions left unanswered, and for a lot of people who aren't diehard tech junkies, this might be their first look at the project within a larger context. First, a little more info: Google Glass is a device that's worn much like a pair of glasses, and might one day even be able to be worn attached to a pair of prescription shades or sunnies, that functions much like an iPhone or digital camera but is totally hands free. At the end of her runway show today, DVF herself was wearing the device, and could be seen mouthing "I'm filming you" to the lovely people in the front row (which included Sarah Jessica Parker and Bravo's Andy Cohen) as she took her bow accompanied by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Honestly, though, we're not entirely sure how the glass works, and neither, it seems, are fans of both the glass and DVF, who, when the designer posted photos taken with it to her Google+ page, kept asking about the user interface. Do you talk to it, like Apple's Siri? CAN IT READ YOUR MIND? What we do know is that it takes pretty great photos, and the designer and her staff have been using both the photo and video functions to record on the runway and off, to be released as a short film on Thursday September 13th. Check out more photos seen "thruglass" as DVF's hashtag so poetically puts it, after the jump.

Lady Gaga at Google.

Remember how we told you last week about Lady Gaga answering your questions? Well, the video finally came out, and it's over an hour long. We were watching on our phones and totally didn't remember what the muscle memory of training on your eyeballs on ONE thing for an hour felt like, and so that part was weird but everything else about it was incredible (including her wearing an AMAZING Sally LaPointe dress for the third time!).

Some nuggets:

"I don’t go out after the show and get plastered and do a ton of drugs, and when I go on stage the next day I can barely sing. I’m very disciplined and hardworking. As a blonde woman with tits and ass, I’m very proud of my accomplishments as a musician. And I say that with lots of strength. People call it arrogance, but I do believe that women in pop music have a very bad rap, and I think people have learned to expect very little from all of us. And it’s very unfair. It’s very prejudice. Me, and my tits, and my ass and my brain are very proud to be here today."

Talking about our DREAMBOAT Zombie Boy (call us!) in her 'Born This Way' video:

"It took me an hour to get my makeup like that. Rico (Rico?), who was in the video with me, he was tattooed that way. I asked him when we were on the set, why did you get — it’s kind of a weird, funny question, but—why did you tattoo yourself this way? And he said, 'Bazooka gum.' I said, 'What do you mean Bazooka gum?' Well you know how Bazooka gum comes with those stick-on tattoos? He said, “I really liked them, and I liked punk rock when I was a kid, so I just used to listen to punk rock and put Bazooka gum tattoos on. So I tattooed my face like this.' So that’s why we chew bubble gum in the video. But I wanted to attribute Rico because what this look represented to me was that I will not allow society or critics to dictate my beauty. I tell you what is beautiful about me. Every person defines their own beauty for themselves. So that’s what that makeup represents to me. Rico was defining who he is in an artistic way and not relying on society to tell him what's valuable."
