With two satisfying clicks, the Bas or the Bistable Automatic Shoe wears itself around you. No electronics, no Bluetooth apps, no fancy self-lacing technology, just innovative thinking.
伦敦皇家艺术学院的学生 Yvonne Hung 以一个简单的想法开始了她的论文研究项目……怎样让纺织品可以移动？在该项目的设计初衷是因为设计师出了事故，她的手臂有六个星期不能自如的穿衣服和处理一些基本杂务。这一点激发她设计一种可以“自己穿上”鞋子的想法。多次迭代之后，她研究出了基于纺织品的执行器或纹理器。Bas 具有被动双稳态和顺应性执行器的框架，该框架是通过使用传统的篮子编织技术将弹?#19978;?#21644;弹性线组合而成的。这两个元素之间的张力使它们可以进入打开或关闭状态，从而使鞋子具有真正的“开-关”模式。一旦您的脚后跟和脚趾球对鞋垫施加压力，Bas 就会恢复活力，其内部的金属骨架会弹起，从而包裹住您的脚。围?#24179;?#23646;框架编织的定制针织面料会让你的脚感到舒适，同时用保护性面料层覆盖您的脚。要打开鞋子，只需在鞋跟后部拉一个环，然后纹理器自动翻转打开。
Yvonne Hung, a student at the Royal College of Art in London began her thesis project with the simple idea… what if textiles could move? Early on in the project, the designer had an accident and found her arm and hand in a cast for six weeks, when basic chores like getting dressed and putting on her Doc Martens became nearly impossible. That sparked the very idea of a shoe that could ‘wear itself’. Multiple iterations later, she arrived at textile-based actuators, or textuators, that could respond to the act of placing your shoe inside a sole. The Bas has a framework of passive bistable and compliant actuators, created by combining spring wire and elastic cord using a traditional basket weaving technique. Forces of tension between the two elements allow them to snap into either an open or a closed state, giving the shoe a literal ‘on-off’ mode. As soon as your heel and toe-ball apply pressure to the insole, the Bas comes alive, as the metallic armature inside it springs to life to envelope your foot. A custom-knit fabric woven around the metal framework gives the Bas a comfortable feel, while ultimately covering your feet with a protective fabric layer. To open the shoe, simply pull a loop at the back of the heel and the textuators flip open.
Yvonne 说道：“ Bas 的创建是为了展示移动纺织品的潜力”。 “在未来，我们可能会出现具有多种状态的产品新类型 - 会自己穿的衣服，自行改变形状的房间以及自组装的家具 - 所有这些都要归功于机械纺织品。”
“Bas was created to demonstrate the potential of moving textiles”, said Yvonne to Yanko Design. “n the future, we may have new typologies of products that have multiple states—clothes that dress themselves, rooms that change shape, and furniture that self-assembles—all thanks to mechanical textiles.”
