In first place came Miracle Sole by Mitch Gillespie. Gillespie, a physics student, came into the hackathon with no hardware experience at all. Overcoming the barrier of knowledge, he created Miracle Sole, a runner's shoe sole that can sense pressure from the foot when worn. His goal is to help runners improve their form by sensing which part of the foot hits the ground first. Gillespie walked away with $2000 for placing first, proving everyone can be successful in a hackathon.
Here is a sneak peak at some new fabric/product for the Fashion School Store in downtown Kent, Ohio. It has yet to be put in production but should be hitting the racks in December.
