Ducere Technologies creates interactive haptic shoe Lechal

Hyderabad-based Ducere Technologies has recently launched the first-ever interactive haptic footwear, which allows the wearer to access multiple fitness and navigation programs, under its wearable technology brand ‘Lechal’

Replete with Velcro fasteners, the red coloured round-toed footwear’s interactive haptic navigational system, connected with GPS on smartphones via Bluetooth, guides the user towards the destination through simple vibrations. Also, the shoe wearer can tag locations, set destinations, and start, stop or pause navigation with simple foot gestures.

Embedded in the sole heel and back, the technology can additionally count steps and track total burnt calories. It also enables the wearer to set goals and create custom workout sessions.

Available for both men and women, the breathable, water-resistant anti-bacterial shoe design has been crafted from 100 per cent polyester fabrics, rubber and high-quality materials like polyurethane and thermoplastic polyrethane.

Lechal is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows devices and is available in multiple languages.

The shoe was created keeping the three elements in mind: fashion, technology and comfort. Explaining the importance of these three key aspects, Krispian Lawrence, founder and CEO of Ducere Technology, said in a statement, “What is required is the fusion of fashion into technology to impart widespread adoption of wearable technologies, especially if you are looking at making what is intended to be worn 24/7 or for longer periods of time.” (PB)
