A series of digital and physical tools to display the Auxetic Sole Technology: a structure that spontaneously expands and contracts upon impact.

In total we created 3 different kinds of installations:

  • A projection on a stretchable cloth which reacts to touches and stretches of the screen
  • An interactive Kinect installation in which the displayed material deforms based on your silhouette
  • An iPad pro app with multitouch deformations and integrated information screens

All installations demonstrate the possibilities of the Auxetic Sole Technology, have a reactive soundtrack and enable the Nike teams to interact in a tactile way with the technology.

I worked specifically on the general openGL rendering pipeline as well as creating the interaction for the iPad Pro app.


The installations use custom Cinder applications and use Kinect sensors to track displacement and bodies.
