For all of you world travelers or French readers, if you happen to have a chance to be in Paris, you might want to take a run by the Adidas Sport Performance Store and see this awesome looking treadmill they’ve got running. The Paris outlet has a mi Innovation Center where athletes and sneaker fans alike can go for a totally customizable experience. Even more impressive is the treadmill the store has in the Innovation Center.
This thing is not only huge, but can read a slew of biometric data from your feet alone. With this information, which includes foot size, pressure, shape, and landing stress, the customer can then design their shoe using a giant multi-touch display as your 3D show model dynamically updates itself to your specifications. When you finish with your design, a giant mirror graphs a model of the shoe onto your foot in real time. If you’re happy with your design, the shoes will be on your doorstep in 3 weeks from order date.
