“A revolution in wearable technology pioneered by Indian techies”
Krispian Lawrence and Anirudh Sharma, two tinkerers and founders of Ducere Technologies, whose passions to contribute to this world and particularly to their own nation, has resulted into the world’s first interactive haptic footwear, innovated in India and designed for EVERY ONE.
Ducere Technologies announced the launch of the world’s first interactive haptic footwear under their wearable technology brand ‘LECHAL’ (pronounced lay-ch-al, meaning “take me there” in Hindi). The techies envision to deliver ‘The Ultimate User Experience, one crazy product after another’. It aims to offer products that are intuitive and unobtrusive, facilitating every user to evolve to higher lifestyles, reaping the benefits of making technology work for them.
Initially designed to help visually impaired with mobility through unobtrusive means; the duo soon realized that this innovation can be useful for everyone. This thought was further developed to launch stylish footwear with interactive haptic based navigational system guiding the user towards their destination through simple vibrations in the footwear. The footwear that vibrates is the way to go.
Another well meaning thought behind launching lifestyle tech enabled footwear, was to subsidize the cost of the footwear for the visually impaired. Higher sales of the stylish LECHAL shoes would substantially reduce the cost of footwear meant for the visually impaired, which will have additional non obtrusive technology aids to assist them in navigating their way on their own.
Some of the unique features of LECHAL is that it offers a Hands free experience – one can give a voice command of direction to the application, user can Tag locations – with landmarks. It also helps you stay Connected with other LECHAL users – where you can share routes as well.
LECHAL product pack will include a pair of footwear (insoles or shoes), a Charger, an Application which can be downloaded on a smartphone (Android/IOS/Windows compatible). Pre-bookings for LECHAL can be made on www.lechal.com
Today, Ducere and its brand LECHAL, is recognized globally as an innovative brand in wearable technology, winning several awards & recognitions, including being presented at the world renowned TED conference in 2013.
