The Metal Detecting Sandals might cater to the lazy, but seeing as they look like a house arrest anklet, you might be doing a fare amount of running, from the law that is. The sandals create a magnetic field beneath your feet and when distorted by any metal object up to 2 feet underground the battery pack can either buzz, flash or emit an audible alert. Available now for $59.95.
Full release after after the ‘leap’
NEW YORK, June 8 /PRNewswire/ — Now there is a way for beach combers to treasure hunt without carrying a handheld metal detector and wearing a bulky headphone. Hammacher Schlemmer, which for 161 years has offered unique products that solve problems, introduces The Metal Detecting Sandals–footwear that allows you to unobtrusively locate buried artifacts as you stroll the beach.
The Metal Detecting Sandals have a copper coil built into the right sandal–powered by a battery pack that straps to your calf by an elastic band. Using beat frequency oscillation technology that creates a magnetic field, the battery pack alerts you to the presence of metal up to 2′ underfoot by using flashing red LED lights and either a gentle vibration or a clearly audible buzz.
“The Metal Detecting Sandals can be used to detect buried treasure or worn just for leisure by detaching the battery pack,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager, Fred Berns.
The Metal Detecting Sandals require one 9-volt battery (not included) that provide up to six hours of use. The sandals have PVC uppers, non-skid soles, and polyurethane foam footbeds. The black sandals come in two unisex sizes.
