Superfluous Technology

A shoemaker near where I work has adverts up for their company's exclusive patent method - they scan your feet and make a 3D model, then use that to make shoes that fit perfectly. It's unfortunate that the way they describe the machine irresistibly reminds me of the old foot X-ray fluoroscopes that exposed so many hapless kids to about 50 x the recommended annual dose...

later - to clarify this, it's the hype that reminds me of the claims for the x-ray machines - I know they aren't using x-rays!
