MISiS developed air-conditioned sneakers

A model of temperature-controlled sneakers was designed at the MISiS National Research Technological University in Moscow.

The device consists of a housing, a battery, a Bluetooth communication system and control electronics. Using a smartphone, you can set the desired temperature inside the shoe.

“The aim of the project is to develop a device that can locally control the temperature inside the shoe (or other clothing items in the future) when changing external conditions,” said Azamat Tavitov, student of NUST “MISiS” project developer.

The prototype of the device was made using 3D printing in the walls of a digital production laboratory. When a signal is received from a user's smartphone, power is supplied to the fan, and it starts working, cooling the sneakers. In the course of work, the student investigated the properties of various polymeric materials for the manufacture of the main components of the device. Based on the results obtained, he selected the material for 3D printing based on the FLEX thermoplastic elastomer, which has the necessary elasticity and lightness.
