REESET is an interactive sneaker that designs itself based on the user. Promoting an active and diverse lifestyle, REESET keeps track of your daily experiences, and generates a visual representation of your interests on the shoe platform.
Five e-ink panels placed on each shoe act as screens for design sets. REESET is powered by piezoelectric foils mounted on the sole and heel surface, that harvest energy from the user’s movement. A power level indicates how much energy has been stored. The REESET app communicates with the footwear through Bluetooth, managing sets and keeping track of the user’s progress.
Each life experience can unlock a new set, making REESET the most customizable and unique sneaker on the market. Sets can be unlocked by completing goals or attending events. Using Foursquare’s platform, the user can check-in to different locations, which will open up to new design sets. The expressive digital footwear can modify the pattern sequence set in real-time, using the app.
