Tokyo-based Flickfit hope to improve shoe comfort with in-shoe scanners and pressure sensors to take readings of your feet. The 3D technology produces a wire-frame image of your feet is synced with either a tablet, smartphone or laptop.
Using this template, the key areas of comfort are highlighted in a "heat map" and the dimensions of shoes with the most comfortable fit are noted. Flickfit's technology is currently available at only one location in Tokyo ahead of its official release. The company is working at bringing the tech to department stores across Japan and plans are afoot (sorry for the pun) to make the technology available to online shopping.
