In this episode, durable displays that are a step toward the future. This is your Manufacturing Minute.
ShiftWear recently developed a shoe with tech that could change more than the footwear industry.
Using a mobile app or computer, you can create your own design or purchase and download one by another user.
The design then instantly appears on the shoes’ flexible HD panels.
Completely waterproof and washable, the color E-Paper screens are visible even in daylight.
Batteries should last 30 days, but ShiftWear has also promised wireless and Walk-n-Charge tech to keep the screens on indefinitely.
The shoes are still under development, but preorders by way of IndieGoGo donations start at $150.
So, What Do You Think?
Where do you think these durable displays could be most useful? Could this tech be a step in the right direction for manufacturing?
