Samsung Just Patented Smart Sensors In Running Shoes. And The Smart Health Market Just Got A Lot More Interesting.
While there have been many wearable smart devices coming up, Samsung does not have anything in its collection that is designed for ordinary users. It now looks like the company has plans to come up with smart running shoes, with or without a partnership with a footwear brand. These shoes are likely to have smart sensors and can be handled via a smartphone app.
Samsung’s smart shoes patent for this does not give much detail but the base designs show that the sensors within can be activated by pressing a button in the shoe or by pulling the tab. Look-wise, it looks like any other shoe!
As to what makes it smart, aside from tracking your steps, that is still questionable. You can use pedometers, smartwatches, or even your smartphone to count your steps.
Maybe it could tell the user if they are running correctly, the posture and maybe even guide you through it, based on the information receives from the activity. Since Samsung’s expertise does not lie with creating apparel or footwear, chances are that the company will tie up with a reputed shoemaker for this project.
