Now a days, wearable devices or things are getting smarter. Earlier we have seen so many smart wearable things. Now, there’s a new Kickstarter project called runScribe, which is actually a tiny sensor that attaches to wearer’s shoes and will help him/her run better, smarter and safer.
runScribe is a nine-axis sensor equipped wearable device that can be attached to sneakers. This wearable device uses sensor data to measure and track various datapoints including stride rate, contact time of your foot with the ground, impact G’s and the angle of the wearer’s foot pronates, or rolls, while in contact with the ground.
In simple language, this wearable device can measure a total of 13 different data points from how the wearer runs and help him/her improve his/her running efficiency.
runScribe helps prevent any future injuries for people who run avidly. Its small sensor uploads the running data of the wearer over Bluetooth with either iOS or Android. The wearer will only get around 30 hours of run time on a single battery.
runScribe creators are now collecting funds via Kickstarter. The runScribe creators targeted to raise a fund of $50,000 by Sep 19, 2014, (7:48 PM, +06:00), but as of writing, they have collected $86,519 from 475 backers, keeping 26 days in hand. For $99, people can back the Kickstarter program and get a runScribe when it arrives later this year. Here’s a video of runScribe.
Without a doubt, runScribe certainly has potential, let’s just hope it doesn’t disappoint like some of the once-promising Kickstarters. The project team expects to deliver the product this December. For more details, hit the link below.
