High Tech Forceshoe Collects Data As You Walk

It looks like Nike may have found its successor to the Shox shoe, with the University of Twente’s Forceshoe. The “smartshoe” has a range of sensors that are attached to a computer clipped to the back of the wearer. The system measures all kinds of details on how a person is walking.

The technology is currently used to help recent stroke victims, many of whom are paralyzed on one side of their body or another. The forceshoe gives feedback on the walking rhythm, giving constant digital feedback, allowing the walker to adjust his or her feet to compensate.

Google Works On Addiction To Adobe Flash

Google announced yesterday that it has added Flash support to its Instant Previews feature even though it is cautioned against using Adobe’s plugin too heavily.

The method would implement whenever a website’s details were scraped by Google’s bots but would also be turned off when the preview had to be generated on-demand.
