KickSoul: A Wearable System for Foot Interactions with Digital Devices

Groups

KickSoul is a wearable device that maps natural foot movements into inputs for digital devices. It consists of an insole with embedded sensors that track movements and trigger actions in devices that surround us. We present a novel approach to use our feet as input devices in mobile situations when our hands are busy. We analyze the foot's natural movements and their meaning before activating an action.
