Here’s what it means if you see someone wearing these specific shoes


In a busy world, it can be especially challenging for those who are visually impaired to move around safely.

But, there’s exciting news from a company in Austria called Tech-Innovation that’s making a big difference with a clever new device.

Tech-Innovation has developed a special kind of shoe just for people who are visually impaired. These aren’t ordinary shoes; they have a smart sensor built into them. When someone wearing these shoes approaches an object, the sensor detects it from as far away as four meters and as close as half a meter. It then sends a vibration or a sound to alert the wearer, helping them to avoid obstacles.

These innovative shoes, called InnoMake, are designed to make walking safer and easier. The sensor in the shoes is tucked into a special slot and is powered by a rechargeable battery that can last up to a week. It only takes three hours to fully charge the battery.

There’s also a free app that comes with the shoes. Users can customize many settings through the app, like setting how close they need to be to an object before getting an alert.

What about bad weather? No problem! The sensors are water-resistant. Plus, there’s an intelligent mode that turns off the sensor when the wearer is sitting down and turns it back on when they start moving again.

People in Austria can even try these shoes in several shops before deciding to buy them. This invention isn’t just smart; it’s changing lives by giving visually impaired individuals more freedom and safety in their daily lives.
