New York, July 25: An Indian startup company Ducere Technologies has come up with the very first ‘smart shoe’ that will tell people where to go.
The firm, which was started by two Indian engineers in 2011, developed the shoes called ‘Lechal’ to ease the way for blind people, the New York Post reported.
Krispian Lawrence, co-founder and chief executive officer of the company told WSJ.com that the shoes were a like an extension to the human body which helped in detecting obstacles.
He added that the shoes, which are for 100 dollars a pair, could be paired up with Google maps’ smart-phone app and vibrated whenever the users needed to turn. (ANI)
