Salted Venture首席执行官Jacob Cho说："我们的目标是让热爱健身和运动的人，更好地进行智能化运动训练。我们想不仅仅用我们的胆量解决这个问题，而是用实际的数据体现我们的表现。"
这些IOFIT智能鞋预计将是市场中最好的产品之一。目前该产品已经同三星Galaxy S7和三星Gear 360 相机一同在2月21日三星Galaxy Unpacked新品发布会中亮相。有消息指出，Salted Venture预计会在不久之后对这款产品展开众筹。
The information includes the amount of force being used on several parts of the foot, which will then determine the balance, center of gravity, weight shift, etc. The data can be streamed directly to the app on your smartphone or tablet.
It sounds like Salted Venture intends to crowdfund Iofit sometime after unveiling its current prototype.
According to Engadget, Salted Venture, which is an in-house startup of Samsung, is about to launch smart athletic shoes called the IOFIT.
“Our goal is to empower people who love fitness and sports to train smarter and coach better”, said Salted Venture CEO Jacob Cho. “We wanted to solve this problem not just with our guts, but with actual data telling us how we are performing”. “There was an existing solution that was providing value already”, said COO and UX Planner Sehee Lee.
These IOFIT Smart Shoes are expected to be some of the best in the markets and Samsung’s Creative Labs will be showing them off alongside the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the alleged Samsung Gear 360 camera at the Galaxy Unpacked event on the 21 of February.
But, say Iofit’s developers, providing data alone is insufficient.
The company was inspired by force plates found in premium fitness centers and professional golf facilities, and their ability to provide similar data.
What makes this possible is the video playback feature of the IOFIT application, which allows a user to evaluate their form and the respective real-time data all on one screen.
Athletes and coaches will also be able to can drag on the videos (using the S-Pen, one would assume) and leave voice overs with tips, feedback and observations on the data. This tool allows a coach to draw directly on the video and provide voice-over comments to give straightforward and precise feedback. “You can’t outweigh the benefits that come from a real human-to-human interactive experience”.
While functionality is indeed an important factor, the footwear industry is also about style, which is why Salted Venture is focusing many of their efforts on the design of IOFIT.
Salted Venture is going to demonstrate IOFIT at the Mobile World Congress 2016 next week in Barcelona.
