The new adidas weave robots shoe (adidas)
An innovative design of the latest international technology for shoes to design the latest technology and the latest technology.
To create this stringy board, specialized robots were built, software designed and high-resolution scans made of how runners’ feet moved while running. With 10 different spools of yarn attached to it, the robot can weave the upper part of the shoe based on digital designs.
These designs rely on behavioral data, such as a runner’s speed, manner of sprint, and surrounding conditions during a race, which are combined with other data about foot movement to help determine where each strand should be placed.
This means that every shoe designed in the future will be based on the exact size of its user, and different from others according to this data.
This new technology will be initially devoted, according to a company statement, to manufacturing high-performance running shoes that are expected to be put on the market in late 2021 or early 2022, and the company is currently looking into how to use it with other products it manufactures.
Strings are woven directly onto the sole of the new Adidas sneakers.
Towards a clean and developed industry
Although Adidas has gone far in using advanced technology in the manufacture of high-quality shoes by developing robots and special software and using behavioral data, relying on these technologies is nothing new in this field.
It has transformed the manufacturers’ race to provide the best products from a polluting industry to an industry that relies on robots and uses environmentally friendly materials to create custom-made shoes.
A few years ago, these companies used to manufacture more than 25 billion pairs of shoes every year in the world, and they usually use between 26 and 65 types of materials to manufacture one pair, while the manufacturing process takes 360 different stages, which makes the recycling process very complicated.
This is what makes the shoe industry among the activities that are most harmful to the environment, especially since most of these products are usually disposed of in nature, although they contain materials harmful to the environment such as plastic and glue.
Therefore, major companies in this field have worked to develop this industry, relying on advanced technologies to bypass these black points, while reducing the number of materials used.
So the company “Nike” (Nike) – for example – to develop soles for running shoes from thin layers of sponge and carbon using 3D printing technology is now widely used.
For its part, Adidas has reached the use of one material (thermoplastic polyurethane) in the manufacture of high-performance sports shoes that can be recycled. Meanwhile, many manufacturers have turned to recycled materials to make their new shoes.
It is a series of technological leaps that will drastically change the shoe industry into a clean, robotic industry.
