Sensoria : The new smart sock




Heapsylon produce Sensoria, a $149 anklet device. The Sensoria is a horseshoe anklet and attaches to a special sock via five brass knuckle-like magnets stitched near the lower shin area. Special sensors in the bottom of the sock measure where the foot makes contact with the ground and for how long. The lightweight anklet contains a CPU which analyzes data from the sensors. Softwear displays a detailed heat map of where pressure is being placed on your foot, along with detailed statistics on foot contact time, cadence, steps taken, stride length, and speed .The discreet unit goes un-noticed but for a small hump in the sock. According to the manufacturers it coaches users with real-time analysis of their foot-striking position and stride. It will be available to its crowd-funders later this year and available to the public in 2015.
