Creative technology company +rehabstudio has unveiled its latest concept for a smart surface sneaker that allows wearers to adjust design and color via a custom built mobile application. Following on from Nike’s constant experimentation with wearable technology, +rehabstudio has outdone many preceding designs and has the potential to mark a turnaround for today’s smart fabric market despite being a mere concept. As part of the studio’s monthly Hackweek Project, “Shift” is a culmination of attainable and future technologies that explore the potential of modern day apparel when combined with current knowledge.
