Aging Technologies - Our first experiential sketch

Walk my shoes is an experiential design sketch where we by using only RF (radio frequency) can detect the rhythm of walking. By using RSSI (received signal strength indication) we are capable to detect very subtle steps or movements, movement that would not be possible to detect with a pedometer or accelerometer. While walking the user returns feedback in the form of sounds, sounds that aims to give her the impression that she is walking in water or on top of snow, just to take to examples of sounds we have tested with this sketch. The sketch is such that it follows the rhythm of the user but at the same time it also pushes her to walk in harmony with the specific sound.
