Thanks to this accessory for your sports shoes, you will be able to reach your destination in the shortest possible time thanks to its motorized wheels.
If you want to always be in the latest fashion but dress casually at the same time, surely you have hundreds of offers from shoes for man or for woman that you can use for your outings, but if you want to tire as little as possible and reach your destination on foot without spending much energy, you will love the Moonwalkers.
And it is that it could be said that the Moonwalkers are the last in fashion casual, some shoes that you can mold to any footwear of men or women’s, and that will allow you to walk much faster than with any other shoes you have at home, because technology has also reached this market segment.
And right now the company Shift Robotics has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for its new Moonwalkers, an accessory for your shoes that will allow you to reach your destination as quickly as possible, and with practically no effort.
It is a campaign that still has 26 days left, but it has already achieved its goal, so everything you invest will be rewarded with the shipment of these shoes in June 2023, although only if you reside in the United States.
Basically the Moonwalkers are an accessory for our footwear that adds motorized wheels being able to increase our walking speed by 250%.
Its managers are the company Shift Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University and best of all, it can be adjusted to a wide variety of shoes that we have thanks to its adjustable straps and magnetic buckles.
At full speed, but very safe
And it is that as we walk with this accessory, a 300 W motor in each Moonwalker rotates the device’s eight polyurethane wheels, providing a sensation similar to walking on an airport moving belt.
In addition, this accessory has sensors on both Moonwalkers that communicate with each other using machine learning-based algorithms to monitor the user’s gait so that it never runs faster or slower than their pace.
Thanks to the Moonwalkers we can reach up to 11 km/h when walking and bring them to a complete stop in a distance of less than 1m. In addition, the Moonwalkers are able to regulate the speed of the wheels when we go downhill so that we do not lose control.
They also have two modes of use such as Shift and Lock. On the one hand in shift mode the wheels can turn freely while walking; While in the lock mode they remain locked.
This last mode is very important for when we climb stairs or simply want the wheels not to move by themselves.
On a single charge we could reach up to 10 km traveledso it is ideal for short or even medium distances on the sidewalks of our city, although it could also work well in other areas.
If you want to invest you should be aware that they will only send it to you if you reside in the United States, and putting on the table a minimum of approximately €1,100.
The company intends to also put them on sale once this collective financing ends, although at $1,399 and perhaps there you can pull an import.
