Smart shoes are on the horizon

March 12, 2020

Wearable technology is about to reach a new level, thanks to the rise of smart insoles developed by Google, EA and Adidas.

The Adidas GMR comes with two insoles, a Jacquard tag for your dominant foot and a dummy tag for your off foot. The tags slip into the insoles and the insoles slide into whatever shoes you’re playing in. By using Bluetooth, these tags will track physical movements and then beam this information, like your speed, kick power and movement, to your phone where it will be translated into loot for the FIFA Mobile app. The insoles will also collect loads of statistics from your workout so that you can improve your performance.
