 Insert sensor in the intern sole;Step 1: Insert the sensor in the insole.

Step 2: Connect the receiver to the Ipod Nando( Ipod Touch doesn’t require this use)

Step 3:  The sensor and the receiver measure the performance.

These data appear on the Ipod/Iphone and then can be shared  with other runners via the website Nike plus, via a connection to a computer. Nike plus website  acts like a social platform permitting to the runners from around the world to communicate, improve and compare the performances.

Recently, Nike spread new devices along those lines, creating a collection of “smart shoes”. A new line of shoes able to track the athlete determining the distance or the number of steps traveled in one day, and the high jumped, thanks to the information transfer between an Iphone/Ipod and a sensor.
