ARM Powered Shoe Kiss & Tell

Posted by Charbax – November 1, 2016

Kiss & Tell, an ARM Powered Shoe. Kiss & Tell was a concept that turned into a reality all done on ARM Technology. The idea, a shoe that can change the patterns on the straps based on the touch of a finger from an app on your mobile. For example, if you were invited to have tea with the Queen, the Union Jack could be displayed in seconds; if it was Valentine’s Day, hearts could be flashing. The sole, upper, and interchangeable heels were designed in Tinkercad on an ARM Powered Chromebook, printed using an ARM Powered 3D printer, and then spray painted with custom car paint. The circuitry and the LED designs were both done on Raspberry Pi 3. The shoe is powered by an ARM Cortex-M0+ that sits on an Arduino MKR1000 board that is hidden in the shoe’s upper.
