Colour Altering Textiles by Rhys Duindam

The Performance Heel concept by Rhys Duindam meshes electronics and fashion together to create a dynamic user experience. I’ve seen light projection on sneakers, but it looks like Rhys has actually developed a tangible, flexible material that can alter it’s appearance (without the use of nano technology) –

‘My final bachelor project at the Technical University of Eindhoven (Netherlands) was to create a dynamic store-front window display for the United Nude flagship store in Amsterdam.

The final concept was a textile that wrapped around their Fold High shoe model that allowed for a beautiful and dynamic color change. This was used together with a motion tracking program to allow passer-by’s to browse the entire color collection of the Fold High on one shoe.’ – Rhys
