MIT Design Lab and Puma Testing Shoes That Use Bacteria to Sense Fatigue Levels

MIT Design Lab and Puma have teamed up to develop shoes that adapt to your feet. Using bacteria, the insoles sense fatigue levels based on sweat. The shoe fabric ventilates based on heat patterns in the foot.

According to MIT Design Lab, the design team aims to make athletic gear highly adaptable, personalized, and future-proof. The project with PUMA explores the opportunities to apply fields such as materials science, electrical engineering, and artificial intelligence to make new products that transform and enhance the user experience.
