Eric Sprunk, Nike’s COO, talked about the innovation in Nike’s Flyknit technology and what it suggests about the way sneakers could be made in the future. Based on what Nike is already doing with Flyknit, Sprunk says the ability for consumers to 3D print a pair of sneakers is close at hand. [via Quartz]
The way it might work goes something like this: You could head to Nike’s website, customize a sneaker to your specifications, and buy a file containing the instructions for the 3D printer. If you have a printer at home, you could print it yourself and have a new pair of sneakers in a matter of hours. If you don’t, you could take the file to a Nike store and have them print it for you.

To print a piece of clothing, you would first shop from an online marketplace of designs and download the outfit of your selection. In addition you need to buy a cartridge of thread, from a company or a designer. Then you can just print it out on your own 3D printer. The most interesting feature is, when you want something new, you just feed the clothes back into the machine. Clothing can be loaded back where it is broken down into thread and cleaned. The thread is returned to its cartridge for future use, cutting out the whole shipping and distributing costs and waste.

Van Herpen has attracted attention from the tech world for her experiments with 3-D printed designs. Her 3D-printed dresses made Time magazine's top 50 inventions of 2011 and her collection has been the subject of an exhibition at the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Netherlands. As Smart Planet explains:
Her process begins by sketching clothes via Photoshop instead of on paper, and then she collaborates with engineers at the Belgian additive manufacturing company Materialise –whose other collaborators tend to be biomedical, orthopedic, and industrial companies.
