MIT and Puma produced the sneakers with a

As you know, good sports shoes should be not only comfortable, but also well-ventilated. The metabolism of each person is different, which influences all processes of life, so in the same situation, people sweat differently. And sweat is a favorable environment for the development of fungi and pathogenic bacteria. How can that be? Sewing individual shoes every? Not necessarily, because the specialists of the Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) in collaboration with the sports goods manufacturer Puma released the sneakers in which the ventilation control of specific bacteria.

Collection of sneakers received the name Adaptive Dynamics and is one of the world's first types of footwear with elements of so-called biodesign. This means that for some functions, used by live bacteria. In this case, they are responsible for the ventilation of shoes. How is it done? Microorganisms aktiviziruyutsya in a time when increased physical activity, and with it the temperature. The higher the exercise intensity and the temperature, the higher the rate of reproduction of bacteria.

The bacteria live in special compartments in the destruction turn into pores for ventilation. In the process of life bacteria feed on materials Shoe and forms the vents. But to worry that the bacteria will eat all the shoes, not worth it. They can absorb only a certain type of material to improve heat transfer. Also in sneakers Adaptive Dynamic embedded sensors collecting information about the movement and physical activity. It is expected that the collection will be available in a limited edition, then some experience can be used in the main product line Puma.
