Puma and the MIT Design Lab hope to shape the future of sports apparel with the use of new technologies.
Specialists Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) and Puma produced the sneakers in which the ventilation control of specific bacteria.
The idea of this cooperation is that people will be alive, adaptable products.
Collection of sneakers received the name Adaptive Dynamics and is one of the world’s first types of footwear with elements of so-called biodesign.
Bacteria that live inside cracks on the top layer of the insole, able to detect compounds present in sweat. Then bacteria react, changing the conductivity of the insole. Further registration of such changes. At the end of the shoes sends information to a smart device user. Users can read all about fatigue and performance levels in real-time.
“Biodesign could become a new way of human interaction with the material; the material can change shape in accordance with changes in the environment,” – said the creators of sneakers.
Official plans for output of such footwear on the market yet, but it is expected that the collection would appear in the form of limited edition, then some experience can be used in the main product line Puma.
In addition, Puma provided a t-shirt Carbon Eaters with a small container filled with a culture of microorganisms which react to the increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the air change color.
Puma and the MIT Design Lab hope to shape the future of sports apparel with the use of new technologies. Their cooperation could potentially affect the design of sports jerseys, baseball equipment and shoes for runners.
