Designed entirely by humans and manufactured entirely by robots, the ADAPTIV shoe is literally the future. With absolutely no human intervention in the manufacturing process, ADAPTIV is completely made by 3D printing robots. What’s more special is the fact that ADAPTIV is built with multiple gyroscopes and pressure sensors allowing the ADAPTIV to “move air pressure throughout the shoe to support one’s bodily shifts and motions.”
Foot strain should be a thing of the past with the ADAPTIV as it uses a series of 3D printed silicone air bags within the shoe to provide tailor-made comfort to the wearer. Using a series of sensors, the shoes can target stress points, allowing air-bags to provide relief over long periods of time. Leadoff Studio designed the shoe which then got showcased at an event hosted by Carmelo Anthony around the NBA All-Star Weekend. The designers see this unique brand of shoes becoming a reality in just a matter of 5-10 years.
The ADAPTIV Shoe is a winner of the Red Dot Award for the year 2017.
