Addidas says that it has launched the world’s first intelligent shoe. They here is “intelligent cushioning”.
The shoe is equipped with sensors that will detect if the cushioning needs adjustments. An embedded microprocessor is responsible for interpreting the sensors’ data (1000 readings per second) and commanding any changes as the user walks.
The shoe has been under development since 2001, and one thing is certain: I need to get these to walk from my desk to my car.
