The New York Times :The Bionic Running Shoe

5/6/04 By Michel Marriott
"SHOES have long been sensible. Now some are getting smart. Smart enough, that is, to sense their environment electronically, calculate how best to perform in it, and then instantly alter their physical properties to adapt to that environment." The sensors in this shoe aren't so new, but the way it controls the cushioning is pretty neat. Overall this is a very interesting use of the sensors.
