Do you love technology and how it is able to augment the way we do things, making our lives a whole lot more efficient? If you have answered that in the affirmative and have an absolutely love for running, then you would most probably be interested to check out this pair of enhanced running shoes. Thanks to researchers over at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, who happen to be working alongside scientists in five European countries, they have come up with the RUNSAFER smart running shoe. The RUNSAFER will rely on a slew of integrated G force, direction, and GPS sensors which are capable of determining just how hard, fast, and how long you have been pounding the pavement, in addition to knowing whether you have been hitting hard or soft surfaces, not to mention knowing just when you are taking a break.
This unique pair of running shoes will send all the relevant data over to your smartphone using Bluetooth connectivity, and your handset will be connected to a central computer which will further analyze the information. In return, you would be on the receiving end of certain tips that might let you know how you can run better, safer, and in a more efficient manner to maximize the benefits of your workout.
