Trends in fashion are always very popular among people. But what about a trend that combines fashion and technology? A came across something I have never hear before: sneakers that have HD displays to show you custom designs and animations.
I know what you are thinking: Lisa, what the hell are you talking about? I am talking about sneakers from the company ShiftWear, based in New-York, The United States. They produce shoes that are connected to an app on your phone. The app is for iOS, Android and Windows. Here you can create the design of your sneakers. This could also be animations in different colours.
The sneakers are waterproof and bulletproof (not sure if we will need that) and come in five colours. You can also get the shoes with a low, medium or high top. The batteries should last about 30 days, but you can also charge them by walking or by a wireless charger. When you are just using a static image, it will not cost any energy at all, the animations use the most energy.
It can be hard to make a decision for your design, so why not choose multiple? With the app it should be possible to swap between different styles. But what if you are really creative and you want to share your designs? That is all possible within the app. You can also buy design from other creators.
This project is part of an Indiegogo campaign to raise enough money to get ShiftWear started. The campaign was set to raise an amount of 25,000 dollar and succeeded. Now the only question is: when can we buy these shoes and for how much?
