Digitsole: Smart Insoles
The rechargeable insoles come with a smartphone app that allows users to track distance travelled, calories burned and even warm up their feet – completely wirelessly.
The Digitsole has been designed to fit into any shoe – from sneakers to ski boots – making it a more practical option for tracking daily activities than specially made smart-shoes.
The insoles are also better placed than other wearables to measure footsteps accurately, according to the designers: wristbands offer an approximation of physical activity, whereas each step is counted with Digitsole.
The insole weighs 3.5 ounces, has in-built Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and can be individually controlled to warm up to 104°F. Pairs of the insoles are available for a Kickstarter pledge of $99 or more, and are scheduled for mass production in 2015.
