    Re: Relevant Technology?

    That prce always reminds me of what my mum would say.

    "You need to buy two, just in case one breaks!"

    I think she was joking.........
    It isn't easy being apathetic, but someone has to do it, or it will never get done.

    Time spent doing nothing useful, is never wasted.

    If there were no witnesses, then it wasn't me!

    A lot of these so called technologies made me wonder what were they thinking when they came up with the ideas.

    Oh I am sure that was what they thought.

    It does not look like they will meet their fundraising goal though. Crowd funding enthusiasm is typical strongest in the first week.

    I look at their team, it took that many brainy guys to come up with this?

    Technology is great but sometimes i think we depend on it too much and I also feel sometimes it can get in the way.

    Yes, only a little over 10 years ago that we were not this technology dependent. Like Steve Jobs said, they created a "want", not to answer to a "need".

    I have a friend that makes custom insoles. They cost 600 per pair, and are made of carbon fibre. Obviously they are going to be better, but not everyone really needs such standard, so, yes, at the price and design, I think they are rather clever and worth giving a try.

    However, get someone else to take your side view foot picture, or the shape will not be natural.

    Do report back, as I am curious, having never seen them before.

    I am not buying it but once they are on the market which I think mid or late of Q1 next year, I will send you buyer's opinion.

    They are still in the first round of fund raising process for production.

    If that works I'll have to tell my friend. Her husband is so loud that she sometimes goes into their spare bedroom.

    There must be at least 5 similar products on the market already, with not good reviews. I hope this one will have better review.
