This Avatar Uses Your Gait to Predict How Many Calories You Will Burn

Robotic Gizmos

There are already plenty of tools that can guesstimate how many calories you can burn by walking and running for a certain period of time. EPFL researchers are taking the idea to the next level by developing an avatar-based software for this very purpose. It looks at how people walk in order to predict their energy expenditure.

The avatar is essentially a torso with two legs with feet. Users can enter their height and weight and set the walking speed, distance between their feet, and other parameters. The # of calories burned and energy consumption are displayed in real time.
