For something that was conceptualised over an impulse to help the “visually-impaired navigate their worlds better”, Lechal (Hindi for take me along) has sure come a long way. Touted as the world’s first interactive haptic footwear, this wearable will soon be available as a shoe or insole that tells you which way to go and collects data about our activities on the way.
We believe technology has to integrate with our lives. And a shoe is almost like a natural extension and you always have it on,” explains Krispian Lawrence, Co-Founder & CEO, Ducere Technologies. Lechal uses haptic feedback to direct the person wearing it and can collect data like other wearable devices.
