Shamees Aden, London based designer is together with the Danish researcher Dr Martin Hanczyc developing a shoe that can be 3D printed to fit a foot as precise as an extra layer of skin. The material used is called protocells and consists of molecules that are not living material on its own but can be transformed into living organisms when combined. “By mixing different types of these non-living molecules, scientists are attempting to produce artificial living systems that can be programmed with different behaviours, such as responsiveness to pressure, light and heat.” Dr Martin Hanczyc is an expert on protocell technology at the University of Southern Denmark.
