Haptic footwear from Lechal

Check out these shoes:

You can find out more from their website here

Here are some questions for you to answer in the comments section:

  • What does “Haptic” mean?
  • How do you think the shoes work?
  • Can you think of why this technology may be more than just “cool”?
  • Can you think of any similar ideas that might be developed – can you find out any that have already been invented or developed?
  • What’s the difference between “invented” & “developed”? How long do you think it takes between the two stages? What do you think is involved?
  • Do you think we could “Scratch” some Haptic shoes?

Do you have any questions for the inventors or manufacturers? Ask them in separate comments and I will see if I can get some answers for you.

  1. I agree It would because if people can’t see the vibrations will help them. BUT how would a blind people type in google maps.?


  2. The first thing that I thought would be useful for, was blind people. Think about how useful that would be?
