Sneakerbot II: Back to the Future of 3D Printing


Pocket-Lint reports that Recreus has developed a 3D printed shoe that is heavily influenced by the Back to the Future films.

“The company has managed to create a 1.75mm filament that will print without the usual clogging issues while still remaining flexible after hardening.”

This flexible material gives the sneakers the ability to fold and bend into small sizes.  “They can spring back into shape ready to be worn offering balance, support, and comfort.”

You can even print the shoes from your own desktop 3D printer, using Recreus’ very own extruder and hot end.  “The Sneakerbot II design file is free to download.”
