Hands Full? KickSoul Lets You Kick to Answer Your Phone


Ever tried to answer a smartphone with your hands full? Try your foot instead. KickSoul is an insole that you can slip inside shoes to control digital devices with a flick of your foot.

Xavier Benavides and his team at the MIT Media Lab sewed a gyroscope and accelerometer between two layers of spongy insole. The system’s algorithm analyses the foot’s motion and transmits the information via Bluetooth to your phone.
