Leaving the house at this time of year is never an inviting prospect, but some new insoles making their debut at CES this week might help to make things a little more pleasant.
Digitsole smart insoles are designed to warm up to keep your feet toasty – so you can stand on a tube platform and convince yourself you’re sitting by a roaring log fire. Almost.They’ll go up to 48° C/120° F and you can control the temperature with their app, which is available for Android and iOS.
And their usefulness doesn’t stop at fending off frostbite – they’ll also track how many steps you’ve taken and calories burned and transmit that info to your phone. They come with a battery that should last at least six hours, rechargeable by USB so you can go a whole shift at work with cosy toes.
You can pre-order them for $199 (around £132) from their online store if you’re in the US or Canada, but those of us in the UK will have to wait a little longer, and make do with a budget activity tracker and an extra pair of socks instead.
