While the production and sale of shoes was rigorously separated in times gone by, it is now possible, with the aid of modern scanning technology and the innovative 3D printer, to provide an instant service able to simulate a sports field and print out shoes that are tailored to customers’ wishes. Adaptus offers a modern, holistic footwear buying experience. The buying process entails three steps: choosing the basic shape of a shoe, simulating the context it will be used in, and creating a physical version based on the selected fundamental form and the measurement data gathered during the simulation. Users not only experience an actual form of interaction with sport, but also find the right shoes for usage.

Diplom Theory

In my theoretical work I try to define the future relationship of active human-machine interaction. In the context of the changes caused by new interactive technologies and artificial intelligence, human-machine interaction has changed. One of the biggest changes is active interaction, involving an active interface. In my practical part, this interface plays a role in the background between the system and the printer: through the printer and the environment, the intelligent system proactively recognises the buying needs of users and selects the appropriate form of interaction (visual, tactile, linguistic, etc.).
