As sneakers that do not walk the tide, professionalism is an important support for them to keep their feet on the market. A pair of shoes that look ordinary seems to be full of black technology. Recently, Puma has developed a set of adaptable microorganism sports suits. You’d better do not regard this as an advertising gimmick for Their partners are the famous MIT Design Lab.
The concept of microbial sports suit has appeared in many cases. At the Milan design week, the adaptive dynamics showed four cases related to biological designing, applying microorganism to the design of improving the expressiveness and persistence of sports equipment.
This time, Puma and MIT Design Lab exhibited their latest research results in the Biorealize laboratory in Pennsylvania. The sports equipment called Breathing Shoe is called the future of sports products by MIT scientists.
This pair of training shoes will react in real time according to the biological state and environmental changes of the users. The upper part of the shoe is a mold filled with bacteria. According to the changes in the user’s foot temperature, the bacteria will eat different substances and create a unique air passage.
The lower part of the shoe is also full of technology. It’s a deep study of the insole. Insoles will actively collect long-term and short-term biological information from users according to bacterial’s reaction to chemical components in sweat. The circuit in the insoles will detect some information and convert them into data by micro controller, which finally can be used to measure other factors of human fatigue.
In addition to sports shoes, this technology, which uses bacteria to eat tissues and create air passages, is also used in the design of T-shirts. T-shirts can even remind users of current air quality and material impact on athletic performance by changing colors.
Even the packing bag is not a common consumable. The packing bag of self use also uses biological materials to deal with gas expansion at different temperatures through heat release. The bag can eventually self degrade, leaving no plastic waste left behind.
