Ducere Technologies have launched the world’s first interactive haptic footwear under their wearable technology brand LECHAL (pronounced lay-ch-al, meaning “take me there” in Hindi) according to their press release. Unveiling the brand LECHAL (an umbrella brand by Ducere Technologies for all wearable technologies), Krispian Lawrence, Co-Founder and CEO, Ducere Technologies, introduced two products: insoles and shoes.

The footwear was initially designed to help the visually challenged with mobility through unobtrusive means and further developed to launch stylish footwear with an interactive, haptic based navigational system guiding any user towards their destination through simple vibrations in the footwear. Note: The footwear is offered at a subsidized cost to the visually challenged.

How  does  it  work?

Navigation: An app loaded on a smartphone pairs with the footwear via Bluetooth. The user interacts with the app and can set a destination. The phone’s GPS is used to calculate location data and the directions are conveyed to the user via haptics (simple vibrations) in the footwear.

Fitness: LECHAL footwear counts your steps, and tracks your calories burnt. Through the app the user can set goals, create custom workout sessions and much more.

Interaction: LECHAL footwear allows you to tag locations, set destinations, start/stop/pause navigation, and much more, all by executing simple foot gestures.
