Take a walk in someone else's shoes

Today, second-year  MFA Products of Design  student Tzu-Ching is using the Visible Futures Lab's  structure scanner  to capture the shape of a simple shoe. Nothing is ever really that simple and Tzu-Ching needs fairly precise, working measurements to build around, but through trial and error he was able to create a high fidelity model.

Nothing is ever really that simple and Tzu-Ching needs fairly precise, working measurements to build around, but through trial and error he was able to create a high fidelity model.

His next step is to import the model into the 3D-modeling software of his choice (in this case Cinema 4D), simplify his scan, and build a new outsole around the shoe.

This project will be part of Tzu-Ching's thesis work, the subject of which is regret, and in this particular project he is designing speculative objects to attach to shoes that will record, store, and share VR data so that the user can virtually "take a walk in someone else's shoes”.
