About this project
Everybody has suffered from cold feet, whether on their way to work, while walking, skiing, hiking, or even riding their bike or motorcycle.
What if you could control the temperature of your shoes with a simple click on your smartphone and also keep track of the distance you have walked and calories burned?
Thanks to Digitsole, this is now possible.
And there's more here!
What is Digitsole?
Digitsole is the first connected, interactive, heated insole that can be controlled via your smartphone. This innovative foot product is designed for your health and comfort. Available on Android and iOS, the dedicated Digitsole app is connected to your insole with Bluetooth 4.0 so you can warm your feet and track your day with one easy click.
Once you have connected your insoles with the application, the warm up function can be activated with the on/off button on the app screen. You can then adjust the temperature of each of your insoles separately by adjusting the slide temperature bar up or down. This unique independent adjustment allows you to get the perfect temperature setting for each of your feet. Once the temperature of the insole drops below the preset setting, the built-in thermostat adjusts to the pre-determined temperature.
By entering your weight and height when you first log onto the dedicated app, you can keep track of how many calories you’ve burned while wearing Digitsole. Thanks to the placement of our sensor system in the insole, our tracking is much more precise and efficient than the typical tracker wristbands and other devices that you could find in the market.
Digitsole is at the forefront of the new generation of connected products.
How easy is it to use?
Functions of Digitsole
Warm your feet - Connect your insoles with the app to access the warm up function and activate heat. You can then adjust the temperature of each of your insoles separately by adjusting the slide temperature bar up or down.
Track your day - Through the Digitsole app you can track how many steps you take during the day, the distance walked as well as the altitude.
Calories burned - Check how many calories you’ve burned throughout the day via the app.
If we are lucky enough to hit our funding goal, our Digitsole engineers will work on adding additional functions to the app.
Where can I use Digitsole?
We understand the need to have more than one pair of shoes in our lives! This is why we have designed Digitsole to be thin, very comfortable and easy to place in most shoe types so you only need one pair.
Digitsole can be used in just about any shoe, replacing your original insole. So, you can enjoy warm feet whatever you’re doing.
With only one pair of Digitsole all your shoes can now be connected.
Key features of Digitsole
Shock Heel System - The Poron cushion placed at the back of the insole softens the shock and spreads the vibrations of the foot associated with walking and running
Flex Zone Section - Flexible section placed near the toe box to optimize the natural movement of your feet
Arch Support Section - Additional support in the arch helps with balance and posture
What is Digitsole made of?
The Digitsole platform is moulded from Neotech, which is excellent for controlling vibrations and is an extremely lightweight material developed exclusively by Digitsole engineers.
The next layer of the insole consists of Poron which has superior shock absorbing characteristics. The Poron TX3 layer is covered with high-quality Soft Touch PU micro-fiber, which spreads the heat in an optimal way.
With your help and backing, the Digitsole design team will update Digitsole products with the three items noted below:
* $100,000 stretch goal :
1. Dual Insole Charging - Our design team has listened to your feedback regarding charging each insole individually and that charging both insoles at the same time would be far more convenient. This is why we would like to offer a dual charger cable that splits in two parts. This update would allow consumers the ability to charge both your insoles at the same time.
2. Neotech+ - A new generation of foam material. Neotech+ is even lighter than our current Neotech and offers better isolation of heat. This update would increase heat efficiency by 20%.
3. Electronic Component Upgrade – currently our electronic package uses several metallic components. Our desire is to manufacture several of these key components of Polycarbonate/ABS materials. The net result is an additional savings of 15% in weight without a loss of efficiency.
* $200,000 stretch goal:
With your help and backing, the Digitsole design team will update our water-resistant technology to water-proof technology. With this updated design, Digitsole can be used is the harshest of environments.
* $400,000 stretch goal:
The Digitsole design team will update our charging system to a QI Induction Technology wireless charger. With this updated design, wireless charging will come to Digitsole products as a truly revolutionary innovation.

Risks and challenges
We understand that there are always risks and challenges when developing a new product. At this stage of production, most of the quality risks have been eliminated as we have already rigorously tested the second generation of Digitsole prototypes.
Now we are concentrating on two big challenges. The first one is to improve our battery system. While Digitsole works really well now, we'd like it to be even more efficient! The second one is to further miniaturize the whole electronic system.
From the beginning of this campaign until delivery we will keep you all updated with our work and progress. If there are any unexpected issues or delays we promise to inform you and handle it in full transparency.
With your help we can overcome these challenges to create the best Digitsole. Thank you for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
