Metal Detecting Sandals

Metal Detecting Sandals

If you're looking to uncover hidden treasure, then put your conventional metal detector to the side, and replace it with these pair of metal detecting sandals. Not exactly a trend setter, but a lot more practical than carrying a large pole around with you. The sandals are attached to a small black box, which can be strapped around one of your legs, concealed under your trouser leg.

The right sandal has an inbuilt copper coil, which is powered by the battery pack, which straps around your leg. Once the sandals approach within 2' of a metal object, you will be alerted in one of two possible ways. A light is flashed, and then either a vibration or buzzing noise is emitted. The metal detecting sandals require a 9V battery, which does not come included, but which will supply 6 hours of detecting time.

The sandals come in different sizes, to fit both men and women and can be purchased for $59.95 from Hammacher and Schlemmer.
