Totally New Navigation Assistive Device
Indian wearable tech startup Ducere Tech has created smart shoes called Lechal that can give the wearer directions without needing to look at a smartphone. Lechal translates as “take me there” in Hindi.
The user enters her destination into the Lechal app using Google Maps or a similar navigation app. From this point on, the company claims, she no longer needs to look at her phone. The app connects via Bluetooth to a module that slides into the back of the shoe. The right or left shoe then buzzes depending on which direction the user should turn.
