The smart shoes called Lofit have been named an honoree in the wearable tech category

Salted Venture is a South Korean company, under the banner of Born2Global a major Korean government agency.

On the 17th of November Salted Venture announced they have been named as one of the honorees for the CES 2017 Innovation Awards. Particularly their smart golf shoes called Lofit have been named an honoree in the wearable technology category.

The CES Innovation Awards are considered quite an accomplishment in the tech world. These awards are granted to only the highest-quality products in 28 different categories, by the Consumer Technology Association.

Subsequently this year the wearable technology category had been a hot one, with the competition quite tough and fierce. Now the honoree Lofit will be displayed specially at the CES Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming event.

Lofit is a state of the art designed golf show which allows the wearer to have the most effective impact position. This is made possible by measuring the wearer’s center of gravity with the help of sensors attached in the soles.

The shoes come along with a self-developed mobile application. The app can process 30 to 120 data frames of the wearer per every second.

The app then provides data like real-time changes in the wearer's center of gravity. Likewise the balance data for each swing position is also made accessible.

Other info such as the backswing top and impact point are also calculated by the shoes. The wearer of lofit can then compare this data with other professional golfers or competitors to adjust their posture or technique.

The data is also very valuable for gold coaches training aspiring professional golfers. According to Salted Venture they also plan to apply this tech to other types of sports footwear in the future.
