Discover BILL, Nike’s new robotic system that extends the life of your sneakers #WearableWednesday


Not so much a laptop as a robot for your laptop. The Nike Invoice [Bot Initiated Longevity Lab] is a robotic system aimed at fast fashion. It looks like a really fancy car wash for your kicks to help you get more life out of it.

By Hypebeast:

The Swoosh’s latest innovation uses water-based cleaning agents, recycled polyester, old-school craftsmanship and advanced robotic arms to reinvigorate the life of the Air Jordan 1, Air Force 1, Space Hippie 01 and dunks. After consumers return their kicks to the robot, a 3D digital model is generated that reflects which areas of the upper, sides and tread need refreshing. From there, consumers select the patches they want to roll back. After BILL completes its 45-minute cleaning process, athletes at the Nike store outfit the shoes with new liners and new laces made from recycled materials.
