Sensor socks for better footwear

capskin-sock-in-action

Capskin socks are the perfect tool to look inside shoes. They allow for a drastically improved understanding about what the feet are doing inside shoes. And even better, our sensorized socks feel just like normal socks: they are thin, soft and stretchable. This makes them a mobile, unobtrusive all-in-one solution for capturing invaluable interaction data at any point in the footwear development and fitting process.

Technology

Our Soft 3D Motion Capture Sensors are fully soft, thin and stretch-sensing. They interactively captures 3D motion without requiring an external optical setup. So they can be employed below clothing or even inside shoes.

To reconstruct the pose from the embedded capacitive sensors, we employ a deep network architecture that exploits the spatial layout of the sensor itself.

As a simple sleeve, it can capture human joints and fabricated in the shape of a glove it can even capture the complex human hand.
